Burnt Orange or Rust Colored Flowers - A Gallery of Fall Colored Flowers

This is the brain celosia flower.  It is a very strange or interesting looking flower!  It feels like velvet to the touch, and looks fuzzy.  I have been seeing these more and more in bouquets as of late.  They make a neat cut flower.

Flowers for Fall or Anytime

I love flowers of all kinds. I love to grow them when I can and learn more about them. This hub features some golden, fall colored flowers. I share some bronze, yellows, orange, etc. As fall is approaching here in the States, I can't help but think of these colors more and more. Usually they are seen in the foliage of our favorite trees, and a joy to behold. Here are some flowers that show off some of the same colors.

Celosia, or brain celosia flowers that you see above, are a very interesting flower! They have the most unique design or pattern, that are really unlike any flower I have ever seen before. Of interest to me, I have seen them more and more in flower bouquets! They look rather stunning in that scenario, and had the occasion to buy some recently. They came in red, burgundy, pink, yellow, and more. All in one bouquet. I wanted to pick up something a little special for my husband on his birthday and actually saw them, and grabbed them up! He liked them, and it was a different kind of thing to give, so that was fun.

I have a lot to learn about growing these flowers, as I have purchased them once, but they didn't last too long in the garden. This could be because they were just done with their bloom time, or perhaps something else. So they are not a go to for growing in my flower garden just yet! Keep an eye out for these amazing looking flowers, they are very interesting.

Fall Colored Iris Flowers

While Irises are definitely a Spring blooming flower, they definitely can show off some amazing warm fall colors! You can even see some that look to be almost black. I include a few different irises in this hub to just a small sampling of the colors you can find. It always strikes me as interesting to see these bold, warm colors in the spring, among the pinks, purples, and white irises.

Irises are a favorite flower of mine to grow because they take next to no care. If you are short on time and enjoy a splash of color in the Spring, then you can't go wrong with irises. About the only thing mine don't like is if they are buried too deep. They like to be buried half out of the ground, as long as their roots are pointed down of course. Other than that, dividing them if they get too crowded. Even when I don't make the time to divide my irises, they still bloom beautifully. I will have to do that soon though, and the good news is that you can then share these rhizomes with others! Passing along the beauty is a nice thing to do, and doesn't cost a thing!

These beautiful bearded irises are a deep rust brown color.  They are so unique.

Amazing, Beautiful Orchids

Orchids have to be another one of the most fascinating and interesting flowers in existence! They are like mini works of art, truly. At least to me they are. I show just a couple here but you can see some that boast more of the fall colors. Like many other flowers, they come in an amazing variety of colors. One of my favorite things to do is see orchids in my local gardens or wherever I can. An orchid show can give you a small feel for just how incredible the orchid family is. It is worth a visit to an orchid show if you have never gone.

Orchids make great gifts, and if you do choose to give one as a gift, consider that they aren't necessarily that hard to keep and grow. So it's a gift that keeps on giving. Really, you just need to learn a few small things about your particular orchid, and care for it in that manner. It is just different, and certainly not impossible.

Flowers for the Fall - Chrysanthemums, or Mums

These flowers are favorites in the fall, at least in the United States.  I love these ones in particular as they are perfect fall colors, besides being fall bloomers.

Fall Colored Chrysanthemums, or Mums.

No fall colored flower article would be complete without mentioning the beloved mum or chrysanthemum flowers! These small, bushy flowers are a must in the fall garden! They will come back year after year for you as well, with some simple tips for their care. Mums come in a variety of fall colors, and this is just one, above. You will see these for sail in pots in the early fall, and again, these make nice gifts! Planting them after enjoying a gift of these indoors is a great thing to do. They make hardy little garden flowers as well. Being a perennial, they come back again and again, even after hard freezes. Their compact busy growth can be encouraged by snipping them back if they start to get a little too "leggy" before the fall begins to arrive. Some simple care will bring you years of enjoyment from these flowers.

This Iris is simply gorgeous!  I truly love the different color.  Usually I see white or purple irises.  This is a whole different "feel", in regards to color.
