While autumn in Melbourne has been a season to behold, it is exciting to welcome winter, its blooms and the activities it brings to the city. But before we fully step into the new season, let's appreciate the autumn season and how it brought beauty to Melbourne.
April, the beginning of Autumn in Australia, had brought a burst of colours to different areas of the country. Many parks like Fitzroy Gardens, Ardie Park, and Royal Botanic Gardens lit up with autumn leaves and autumn flowers in Melbourne. But as the late autumn passes us by, we recall all these colourful autumn blooms:
- Autumn Sage, also known as Salvia Greggi, are tough perennials with hundreds of varieties and colours. While there are different species to this bloom, their shade ranges from red to pink.
- Autumn Daisies, also understood as Brachyscome Daisies are Australian native flowers in a pretty purple shade that look beautiful in cottage-style gardens and pair well with rosemary hedges or lavender.
- Dahlias are one of the most common fall flowers that add vibrancy from late summer till autumn. They have 30 different species and come in different shades like peach, orange, pink, and lavender.
- Japanese Windflowers are tall and elegant flowers blooming in the tones of creamy to pure white, purple, and a range of luscious pinks.
- The late-flowering Nerines are easy to grow that add a fresh colour to the season with colourful shades ranging from pure white and pale pink to deep red.
- Roses never fail to charm people with their beauty and colours. They are available all over Melbourne in full swing from April, especially at Aarvi's Flowers. A fun fact, roses are one of the top all-season flowers in Melbourne.
Now, what about the early winter flowers? It's puzzling to think which blooms can withstand the cold temperatures and grow even in the shade during this cold season.
