This container was particularly well done. The succulents are faceted like the amethyst and both the amethyst and soapstone have a nice color echo bringing more life to the plants and the decorative rocks.

8 Perennials for Great Fall Color

8 Perennials for Great Fall Color | Gardening | Scoop.it

Trees haven't cornered the market on autumn splendor. Add these flowering perennials for a foliage sight to behold.  

 

Perennials that have lovely fall foliage give the landscape a carpet of color that matches the canopy in the trees above. That mix of low color and high color will give you the feeling of being surrounded by a rainbow every fall (or being stuck in a Skittles commercial). The trick for the best color punch may be to mass the perennials, which tend to be smaller in stature, airier and less full than a tree. 

 

Follow the photo-link to find a list of great fall perennials.

Temp. fluctuations and wind issues are definitely something to consider when thinking about roof gardening. It's good to know that self watering containers help to mitigate these concerns.
