In the sea of greens and emeralds emanating from turf, trees and shrubs, nothing injects life and depth into a commercial property like a little color. In fact, 95 percent of HighGrove’s metro-Atlanta area clients request seasonal color.
From bulbs that burst through the soil in early spring, providing pops of pigment, to summer’s flowering plants to fall’s intense hues, Atlanta commercial property managers have a lot of options when it comes to color.
As we feel the cooler air and the leaves begin to change color this season, it’s the perfect time to replace tired summer annuals with fresh fall flowering plants.
In fact, the two top fall flowering plants in Atlanta—pansies and violas—can exhibit so many ranges and shades of color that commercial property managers have more options than they can even imagine.
Pansies are one of fall’s favorite flowers; the reason being they come in a complete kaleidoscope of hues ranging from wistful whites to sunny yellows, outrageous oranges and ruby reds to bashful blues and pretty purples.
There are solid-shaded pansies for full single-hue impact, as well as others that provide beautiful blends of contrasting and complementing colors for dynamic drama and dimension.
Pansies can’t be the star of the fall show for long. Violas compete with pansies as season superstars.
Large flowers ranging from cool colors to hot hues that perform well in heat as well as cool climates makes violas hot commodities for long-lasting and bright fall color.
High-Impact Color And Design
This spring, neon flowers were popular. That continues into fall this year with neon-inspired pansies and violas.
While the color options are endless this season, some colors can outperform others in the landscape because of their response to fall’s fluctuating weather conditions. Yellows, blues, purples and whites tend to perform the best, providing consistent and captivating color throughout fall, despite Mother Nature’s unpredictable mood swings.
Oranges and reds, on the other hand, can be under-performers once the weather gets too cool. While all the colors can work very well, especially with the landscape maintenance a company like HighGrove provides, choosing colors that are more resilient may give a commercial property that extra oomph during a rough weather year.
Accent plants like cabbages and kales that come in vivid shades can also accompany fall flowers to add additional color and amazing texture. Ornamental grasses can be used in the same way.
Design possibilities are endless when it comes to fall color. Pansies and violas grow in a tighter fashion compared to spring or summer color, so this is a chance for commercial property managers to get creative in how they want to display their fall color.
