|Seems fall is in the air so I was putting a few containers together to enjoy inside this year. |
A friend gave me this plant. So fun!
So it seemed to need a few friends.
And a few more--
What are the rest of you doing for fall winter containers?

|Those are really nice Julia.Do you display your inside planters all in one place?|
I feel fall comming to.I expect these will be spinach any day.

|Very nice Julia! The little plant your friend gave you is a Haworthia if you didn't already know. :smily:|
Its hard to imagine that isn't it Jo Ann? All that beauty gone in one night. It happens here too. Coleus in particularly amaze me with the spinach effect thing. I've never know a plant that could literally mush up so rapidly at 32F!

|Thanks Jo Ann and David. Yes, the coleus days are numbered. I need to get out and take cuttings before to long. I'm hoping for a few more nice days. We will not have a killing frost until mid-October so still time to enjoy the containers of summer. Jo Ann these containers will have to stay in the kitchen because that has the most light. I try to not have to many house plants because when the warm weather comes they get neglected. David , Yes that's what he said, Haworthia. All the plants were labeled but I didn't keep names straight when planting but that's ok with me. |

|Just finished planting this pot I got from New Mexico a few years back. Not very Fall colors but planted in the Fall to stay outside during Winter.|
Sorry no IDs except Echeveria secunda? and a variation of Sedum brevifolium...

|Julia we have the same frost pattern.No killers until October but the many nights in the 40's untilthen just start the process.|
I have a few Echiveria combos in small containers inside .I planned more semps because they are out all year long.

|Bev, That is gorgeous!!!! Those look so nice in that terra cotta planter. Is that a lizard wrapped around it. Love it. |
Jo Ann sometimes it is into November and I have a few annual geraniums in bloom for Thanksgiving. Not too often though. I'm not thrilled with the season change. I hate all the dark days being this far north.

|The tall treelike one is my favorite succulent in the really nice arrangement. Great pot!|

|All your pots are so pretty. You all are going to make me get out and start putting together some fall planters.|
Our weather has been crazy the last few years. Last Thanksgiving it was 70s and I had roses blooming. But I know the frost is coming. Coleus are the first to go. Succulents usually are out until late Oct early Nov. They are the last to come in because they seem to do better for me if they get a little chilly. As long as it is not below freezing they are fine.

|Sighhhhh, so far I haven't been bitten by the house plant bug yet this year. I really do need to get busy and redo the ones that will need to come indoor in the next month or two.|

|Bev, what a great container - both the planter and the assortment of plants. Love all the different textures in that pot. |

@Bev, lovely pot. What are the 2 larger plants on the right side? I'm sure I have a cutting of the spikey one, and I know that the other is an echeveria, but which one? Most of the ones that I have are either NOID cuttings or lost tag succulents.
Oct 2, 2013 5:39 PM CST
|Deebie, the three are Echeveria secunda (maybe) and the spikey one that's sort of powdery white is a no ID for me. Maybe somebody else can tell me. Also the multiple spikey ones with red tips are no ID either. Both types were picked by my husband...and I did the planting so that his picks would actually go somewhere instead of getting lost in the patio. for lack of attention.|

|They are all beautiful Bev. |
I am not very good at identifying the tender type succulents.
Maybe @tarev can help us?
Oct 2, 2013 5:50 PM CST
|Hullo Bev, one of your plants looks like a Dudleya hassei - the one with long whitish green leaves. Not sure about multi-spikey with red tips, but it does remind me of Crassulas when they start feeling cold, they get red tipped or entire leaves go red.|

|Thanks much for your input, Tarev |
Are your nites getting chilly yet? We've hit upper 40's now where I am.
Oct 2, 2013 5:55 PM CST
|Thank you so much tarev. |
It is much cooler at night here also. In the low 40's. Getting nippy, some of the plants are getting their cold weather colors.

|I took this photo at a local garden center, just love the fall colors that are starting to come on. |
I really do need to make a fall container.

When I think of fall containers, I think of mums and other hardy annuals and perennials. If I planted a new tender succulent it would have to stay inside. Nights here have already hit the 30s once or twice and tomorrow and Friday we are under a freeze alert.
Wish the hardy succulents had the interesting shapes some of the tenders have.
I need to get out and check my tender ones before they get nipped. Since I do not do well on house plants, I guess I just have to say goodbye to them, until I can buy more next spring.
I envy your mild winters, but not enough to want to live where it rains a lot. My Dad once told me, when he was living in MS, that he did not mind the rain because he did not have to shovel it. .
