Fall color beyond mums

Want more fall flowers than just chrysanthemums? Ask at a local nursery if these flowers are suitable for your climate: asters, boltonia, Japanese anemone, Joe-pye weed, hybrid goldenrod (there are many new ones that stay small), toadlily, and turtlehead (Chelone).  All are perennials  that will return each year to bright your yard year after year.
