17 Amazing Fall Flower Window Boxes

Among all of your outdoor planters, the fall flower window boxes are the ones that will be on full show during the whole year. If your packaging doesn't appear friendly, people won't be impressed with your home. Boxes and containers for plants in the front yard should be appropriately constructed. The plants inside them should be rotated at least once every season, if not more frequently, to maintain a visually appealing appearance.

 Fall Flower Window Boxes

Suppose the flowers in the box appear to be spent, lean, and dried up, and it seems like you're cultivating a doll-sized tumbleweed patch. If this is the case, it is necessary to either eliminate the box or educate yourself on how to properly arrange the plants within the package to be suitable for your geographic region and the current season.

Here is a collection of 17 different window boxes that are both lovely and diverse to offer you some ideas for the fall season.

A Stunning Display With Plants, Pumpkins, And Other Decor

1. Urban Boxes

Botanical Blitz is a design company in Minneapolis that specializes in producing growing works of art using outdoor flower arrangements and displays. Botanical Blitz also allows clients to replace their plants on a seasonal or more frequent basis. 

1. Urban Boxes

Large pots are placed on an urban deck and filled with eye-catching plants such as lime green sweet potato vine (Ipomea), decorative grasses, mums, and coreopsis, along with trailing needlepoint ivy.

2. Kale And Mums

With the aid of colorful kale, small ornamental grasses, and yellow chrysanthemums, one can generate the deep, autumnal tones that are characteristic of the season. A few miniature pumpkins are stashed away in various places about the house as a friendly reminder that Halloween and the season for pumpkin pie are right around the horizon.

3. Keeping It Low

Window box designer Kris Jarrett of Driven by Decor believes that stacking various plants will provide the most aesthetically attractive outcomes. Jarrett works for the company Driven by Decor. She wants to plant higher thrillers (using the thriller, filler, and spiller approach), but the boxes in her Connecticut house are placed so high that the bottom half of the window would be obscured if she did so (and block the view from indoors).

Sturdiness

The fact that the boxes are not very deep adds to the challenge of the work since it implies that whatever is planted within will not be able to develop profound roots, making the process significantly more difficult. Her response included chrysanthemums, ornamental peppers, vegetables, gourds, cabbage, and kale. She also had cabbage and gourds.

4 . Autumn Greens

With a giant white pumpkin, Jester's Crown fern, green and white caladium, white mums, cut Annabelle hydrangea petals, dried Astilbe blossoms, frilly ornamental kale, and other seasonal flowers, Linda of Q created a stunning fall window box for Candie. 

The combination of these components results in a wide range of textured and colored greens. She recommends commencing this arrangement at the beginning of fall and continuing it until frost; the caladium will die after the very harsh and very first frost.

5 . Tulip Substitutes

Elizabeth of Pretty Pink Tulips keeps the trailing ivy and other plants in her window box throughout the fall and winter.

5 . Tulip Substitutes

Since tulips do not bloom during this time of year, she chooses to make a specific change by substituting tulips for mums and pumpkins.

6. Hydrangea Filler

Liz Latham of Hoosier Homemade, who blogs at Hoosier Homemade, follows a bright design rule for the window boxes in her Indiana house by preferring to utilize odd numbers. She creates a playful appearance by placing more enormous pumpkins and gourds in the center of the box and at each end of the box. She also utilizes mum plants and dried hydrangea flowers, and all tucked into a bed of hay and dry grasses that spill over the sides of the box.

7. Lavender And White 

Using chrysanthemums, several decorative kales and cabbage kinds, white pumpkins, and light gourds, the interior design company Bria Hammel Interiors of Mendota Heights, Minnesota, fashioned a breathtaking lavender/purple and white fall window box.

8 . Cottage Design

Jane and Leo Windham, owners of Cottage at the Crossroads, are avid do-it-yourselfers who enjoy bringing their outside space to life by creating stunning features. Their autumn window box features gourds produced in the garden, English ivy, creeping Jenny, foxtail fern (also known as asparagus fern), and orange marigolds as annual additions.

9. Reminders Of Late Summer

On Church Street in Charleston, South Carolina, a window box in a brick red tint is decorated with purple pansies, million bells, sweet alyssum, and snapdragons.

10. A Little Box Full Of Whimsy

This box has been updated for the autumn season by adding yellow-orange coreopsis, decorative peppers, red-stemmed euphorbia (spurge), pimply yellow gourds, and cream and orange miniature pumpkins. Some staples, such as the mushroom-shaped garden decorations, have also been retained.

11. Multicolored Mums

A delightful arrangement is created by combining rust-orange, yellow, and lilac mums with gorgeous deep-purple million bells (Calibrachoa) and topping it off with a pumpkin.

12. Bay Window Beauty

A bay window is accentuated by adding three window boxes, each planted similarly with decorative grasses that provide the appearance of a fountain, trailing sweet potato vine, and creeping Jenny.

13 . Dazzling Succulents

Succulents can live outside all year long in areas of the southwestern United States and other places of the world that have relatively mild winters. A window box filled with vibrant succulents that are planted in the fall will continue to develop throughout the winter and will begin to produce flowers in the early spring. 

13 . Dazzling Succulents

This box has a flower-like Aeonium, a blue-chalk Senecio, and a Duddleya in addition to a variegated pelargonium (the plant with the red and green leaves; it is not a succulent).

14. Pretty Pumpkins All In A Row

In a large window box, Beth Schelle, who works at Indigo Gardens and Design in South Bend, Indiana, arranges pumpkins and gourds in various patterns, colors, and forms. Evergreens and arborvitae are nestled among the other plants to soften the appearance and ease the transition into winter.

15. Chrysanthemums And Crotons 

Chrysanthemums in shades of dark pink and purple are interplanted with crotons that have the appearance of being from tropical climates and have leathery leaves, which together provide an eye-catching backdrop.

16 . Design Strategy

Florence and Cecelia, who own and operate Brooklyn Window Boxes by Flo's Gardens, have been designing outdoor containers for a significant time and are experts in the field. Two plants of medium size are placed in the center of the arrangement, while taller grasses or plants with shrub-like characteristics are placed in the background. In the front, three tiny plants that trail or spill over the edge of their containers provide a mix of blooms and foliage that acts as a backdrop for the larger plant in the background. Their efforts have resulted in beautiful exhibits that attract attention and stop foot traffic each season.

17 . Simple Geraniums

Geraniums are resilient plants that may thrive for decades under the right conditions. Removing the wasted blooms from your geraniums regularly ensures they always look their best.

That is an absolute must for window boxes, which are visible to everyone. A traditional red geranium, a pelargonium, coexists in the same place as yellow lantana and blue salvia, both continuing to bloom well into early October.

The fall flower window boxes are the ones among your outdoor planters that will be on full display throughout the year. People's first impressions of your house won't be favorable if the packaging doesn't give off a warm and welcoming vibe. It is essential to properly construct any boxes or containers that will use to house plants in the front yard. If you want them to continue to have a beautiful appearance, you should rotate the plants growing inside them at least once every season, if not more frequently.
