Hardy chrysanthemums in a container.
"Blushing Bride" hydrangea. This blooms white in the summer, but as the flower heads age and dry out, they shift to a dusty pink. The leaves are also beginning to turn as well, and it all keeps this shrub interesting for a much longer season than one would expect.
More hardy mums in the perennial border. These are very pale pink, and look white in bright sunlight. We inherited these, and I think they are the unstoppable remains of someone's once-compact fall pot of mums. Glad to have them!
All those chrysanthemums in the front perennial border make for a nice fall scene, especially with the maple and jack o'lanterns getting into the act.
