Winter Rose™ Eggnog™ poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima 'PER1125') is noted for pink-tinged, ivory-white, recurved and puckered flower bracts borne on sturdy, upright stems. Grow in full sun and water whenever the leaves begin to wilt and the soil is dry. Poinsettias are infamous for wilting if the soils are too wet, so test the moisture content of the pot before adding more water.

Japanese anemone, or windflower (Anemone tomentosa 'Robustissima') produces single light pink to lavender flowers from late summer through fall on a perennial that tops out at 32 inches in height. Anemones are best grown in shade to partial-shade conditions with room to spread over time. This cultivar is among the most heat and drought tolerant of the fall-blooming windflowers; however, it still requires consistently moist soils to avoid leaf burn and damage to the flowers.

Whitfieldia elongata is commonly called White Candles for its never-ending display of 2- to 3-inch pure white flowers surrounded by a petaloid calyx. Glossy leaves with prominent drip tips are all indicative of its origins in tropical rainforests. In cultivation it requires relatively warm temperatures and high humidity, and grows equally well in a large container or planted in the soil of a conservatory. Bright light is preferable.

Treasure New England aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae 'Treasure') is a hardy addition to any midwestern garden. Large, pale violet flowers cover this large perennial throughout September and October.    Typically growing from 3 to 6 feet tall, this butterfly attractant tolerates clay soil and naturalizes well. Pinching back stems in early summer can help control plant height in the garden — those 6-foot-tall plants can topple, and will need staking once blooming begins in fall.

"Bat plant (Tacca chantrieri) has deep purple, almost black bracts on tall, 20-inch flowering stems. The flowers, which can grow up to 10 inches long, superficially resemble a bat in flight with long whiskers. The foliage of this unusual-looking shade-loving plant resembles Spathiphyllum, and its color and odor attract bats and flies to achieve cross-pollination". via @Chicago Botanic Garden

Benary's Giant Lime double zinnia (Zinnia elegans 'Benary's Giant Lime') was originally released for use in cut flower production. Fortunately, bedding plant nurseries have picked up this cultivar for use in the back of the flower bed during the dog days of summer when most other annuals have melted out. Growing to 3 feet tall, it has fully double flowers to 5 inches in diameter on sturdy stems. This cultivar is more resistant to powdery mildew than many other zinnias on the market.
