40 Autumn plants as garden decor for zones 4-9 (mums, kale, sage)

Chrysanthemums and aster are the most common flowering plants I see n the fall garden. But don't feel limited to growing mums, because there is a plethora of edible and ornamental plants that will grow throughout autumn and serve as garden decoration as well.

Here is a list of those edible and ornamental plants, as well as container ideas for growing decoration.

1. Hinoki cypress, Chamaecyparis obtus, USDA hardiness zones 4-8.
2. "Chilly chill" ornamental pepper, Capsicum annuum. There are also edible hot pepper plants that will grow/survive a frost.

There are many more hardy plants that will grow throughout the fall and winter months. Your local nursery, farm store, and even walmart and lowes will have plants available that will grow outdoors during these cool months.
