The Sonnenhut is a typical perennial which comes originally from North America, but is very common among us. Specialists and amateur gardeners distinguish two types, which look very similar. They also make your outdoor area sparkle in autumn! The yellow coneflower (Rudbeckia fulgida) is still called the yellow or shining sunflower, and the red coneflower (Echinacea purpurea), also known as hedgehog head or purpursaw hat. All the names are correct and refer to beautifully flowering, hardy and cared for perennial plants. They bloom in the garden all summer long into the late autumn. The planting is done in the spring. The Sonnenhut prefers a sunny to shady location in the garden and will thank for it with its natural flowers. In the bed you can plant a larger group of sunshades, where they are considered unquestioned views by their colorful flowers. They are not only a joy to our eyes, but they attract many bees and butterflies. If you want to create a real farm garden, then you can put on sun hats.
Sun hats can grow to 1.50 m tall
A noble note in the garden lead the gladioli. The gladiolae grow just like the sun hat, their long, sword-shaped stems are adorned with particularly interesting shaped flowers. They can be white, red, pink, yellow, orange or violet colored. These autumn flowers belong to the family of the Iris family and because of their magnificent flowers, they also look splendid in vases. These flowers like sun-shaded locations outside. They come originally from the Mediterranean and North Africa and feel really good on warm days. They are easy to maintain, but must be regularly poured and fertilized to drive out their beautiful flowers. Gladioles are winter hard, but we recommend that you remove the tubers from the soil after flowering. Let them cool in a cool and dry place.

The Tagetes are still known under the name Cake flower, Turkish carnation or collection flower. These autumn flowers are named after the Etruscan half-god’s day. Approximately 60 Tagetes species are known, originally from Mexico, Argentina and South America. These are perennial garden plants, which spread a wonderful fragrance. But there are also species that have a strong smell and thus drive out insects. These are typical autumn flowers, which only flower in October and retain their natural beauty into the late autumn. The Tagetes plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It does not fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures.During the winter young plants could need a light protection from the wind or cold; They are easy to maintain, but very attractive and bring lots of color and fragrance into your autumn garden.

Autumnal colchicum (Colchicum autumnale)
The Herbstzeitlose is on our list the next beautiful autumn flower, which shows late in September and October her delicate flowers. Unfortunately, it is toxic to humans and animals, so be warned! Prefers a moist soil on meadows and pastures, also in the garden. This crocus-like flower blooms from August to November, its flowering time can not be exactly determined, i. It is timeless. It is precisely this fact that autumn trees have their own name – Herbstzeitlose. It does not require care. After flowering it stays in the ground and hibernates there. If somehow you do not hinder your reproduction, a new one is formed from the old tuber in the spring. This leaves the first dark green leaves in spring. Delicate blossoms impede the autumn leaves much later.
