Celebrate Autumn in the Midwest
Plants of gold
Plant late-blooming hardy perennials such as goldenrod (try Solidago 'Fireworks'), coreopsis, perennial sunflower (Helianthus) and false sunflower (Heliopsis). Shown in picture: Helianthus 'Sunrich orange.'
Crunch sunflower seeds during the fall harvest of the golden flowers, and visit Goodland, Kansas, the Sunflower City in the Sunflower State (goodlandnet.com/cvb).
