To keep your landscaping interesting and colorful, you’ll want a few fall plants that can tolerate freezing temperatures. Here are some of the best options for yards in and around Kansas City.

 

HARDY GARDEN MUMS: Perennials – These will likely survive winter, but only if you plant them in early fall or sooner.

JAPANESE ANEMONE: 

Perennials – These graceful flowers are tougher than they look, blooming in pinks or whites late summer and into fall.
