Building an Indoor Garden? The Best Fall Flowers for Pots and Containers


As the days grow shorter and the temperatures start to dip, it’s natural to feel a tinge of sadness. Especially knowing that the outdoor gardening season is coming to a close. But there’s no need to feel sad about that! Fall is also a fantastic opportunity to bring the beauty of the season indoors. All you have to do is create a gorgeous indoor garden with pots and containers. It does not matter if you have a spacious sunroom, a cozy kitchen nook, a glamorous greenhouse, or just a windowsill. We’re sure that here’s enough room for an indoor garden that can brighten up your home throughout the fall.

Chrysanthemums—The Fall Classics

When it comes to fall flowers, chrysanthemums, or simply “mums,” are the undisputed classics. Their association with fall is so strong that they are often affectionately referred to as “fall mums.” These delightful blooms come in a wide array of colors. From fiery reds, and warm yellows, to rich purples, there’s something for everyone. Planting mums in your indoor containers is like bringing a piece of the autumn garden right into your living space. What’s more, mums are exceptionally versatile and can adapt to container gardening with ease. Their low-maintenance nature ensures that even those with the busiest of schedules can enjoy their beauty.

Pansies—A Splash of Vibrant Color

Pansies are renowned for their cheerful, “face-like” blooms and a wide range of colors that include purples, yellows, and oranges—perfect for fall’s vibrant palette. While they are often associated with spring, these hardy little flowers can bloom well into the fall, making them an ideal choice for your indoor garden. Pansies are not only visually appealing but also exceptionally versatile. Their petite size makes them perfect for small spaces, such as windowsills or kitchen counters. Whether you choose single-colored pansies or opt for the captivating multi-hued varieties. These flowers are bound to bring a splash of joy and vibrancy to your indoor haven.

Asters—Stars of the Fall Garden

Asters, with their daisy-like flowers in shades of purple, pink, and white, are the stars of the fall garden. Their delicate appearance belies their resilience, making them a fantastic addition to your indoor garden. The secret to successfully growing asters indoors is to provide them with ample sunlight. Place them on a sunny windowsill or under a grow light, and they will thrive, while also offering an elegant display of autumn’s colors. Asters are renowned for attracting pollinators, so you may find that your indoor garden becomes a miniature haven for butterflies and bees, adding to the enchantment of the season.

Cyclamen—Petite Beauties of Fall

Cyclamen, with their unique, up swept petals and marbled leaves, are charming additions to your indoor fall garden. These petite beauties come in shades of pink, red, and white, adding a touch of elegance to any space. Cyclamen prefer cooler temperatures, making them well-suited for the fall season. Placing them in decorative pots or containers and keeping them in a cool, bright location will allow you to enjoy their beauty throughout the fall months. Cyclamen’s petite size and graceful form make them ideal for tabletops, shelves, or even creating an eye-catching centerpiece for your indoor garden.
