Garden Plants in Flower October - Shrubs, Perennials, Bulbs and Trees

Don't write October off as being the end of the gardening year. There is so much left to enjoy by way of flower interest and of course foliage as the autumn blaze gets underway.

Coloured stems of the Dogwoods and Willows will also be putting in an appearance - vying for for first place in the colour parade, against flowers and foliage. If the weather is good, October can be one of the most spectacular months in the garden as far as interest is concerned. Study what happens this month to let us know what is in flower or showing colour in your garden. Also take notes of what's happening in other gardens for your own interest and determine to do something towards making next October more interesting in your own garden!

Ornamental grasses, late flowering bulbs, the late perennials of which there are many, and of course the shrubs that either put on a late floral display, or decide to go into winter unclad, and have a last fling with colourful foliage before they do!

As always, we give you a taste of the month with a few teaser images of Octobers past!
