Cryptomeria ‘Black Dragon’

Growing to only 10’-12’ in height, this might just be the perfect evergreen for your outdoor space!  Give this beauty a sunny spot and regular fertilizing and enjoy its sculptural look year-round.


You’ll see cyclamen at CGC in the early spring and fall.  This is because these plants prefer cooler temperatures.  If grown in a somewhat sheltered environment, these plants can pack a flowery punch right through the holidays!

Nandina ‘Firepower’

The warm, reddish hues on the top growth makes for the perfect fall accent shrub!  Keep your Nandina in a part-sun spot and mulch heavily in the fall to ensure it’s winter hardiness.  We love its bamboo-like appearance!


Commonly known as Creeping Jenny, Lysimachia is a trailing perennial that looks great in containers.  The chartreuse color of the dainty leaves acts as a great contrast plant when planted with flowers or dark foliage!

Heuchera ‘Coral Bells’

The many varieties of Heuchera tend to get more gorgeous as the cooler temperatures set in.  The chill causes their color to intensify and really pop!  They are wonderful plants for your autumn containers!  Some of our favorites include Amber Lady, Caramel and Obsidian.

Dryopteris erythrosora ‘Brilliance Autumn Fern’

These ferns are one of the most popular with our customers.  We can’t say we blame them!  Look at the gorgeous orangey-bronze color of the newer fronds against the darker green foliage.  Autumn ferns can be semi-evergreen in NYC.

Nipponanthemum nipponicum ‘Montauk Daisy’

We like to think of this perennial as the last hoorah of Summer!  It’s a late season bloomer, often coming into its prime in early fall.  These cheerful flowers are great when grown in a sunny spot with well drained soil.

Ornamental Peppers

Once those peppers hit our carts you know autumn is in full swing at Chelsea Garden Center!  Available in many colors, these seasonal favorites are great accent plants for your Fall containers.   

Chrysanthemum “Mums”

The classic fall colors of orange, gold, red and deep purple never disappoint!  These beauties will often hold their color through Thanksgiving.

Ornamental Cabbage and Kale

Our most popular fall plant for seasonal color, cabbage and kale will hold up through several hard frosts.  In fact, their color intensifies with the cooler temperatures!
