Soon the magic of fall will arrive and the foliage will turn gold, orange and red. If you planted autumn sunflowers in your garden, you are already seeing autumn colors before the fall season has begun. Unlike other sunflowers that stop blooming after summer has ended, autumn sunflowers continue to bloom in the fall. Autumn sunflowers, which are annuals that come in shades of pink, gold, lemon yellow, bronze and mahogany, grow four to six feet in your garden. Like other flowers, they will attract butterflies to your garden. Since these sunflowers have autumn colors, they are more striking and picturesque.
You can create the perfect fall bouquet by cutting autumn sunflowers and putting them in a vase. If you want to add fall sunflowers to your garden, plant them during the months of April, May or June if you live in New Jersey. When your neighbors look at your garden, they will be surprised to see that sunflowers are still blooming in your garden after summer.
