Give your garden a showstopping finale. Soak up warm October afternoons outdoors in your glorious fall garden. Practical design ideas, plant advice, and ten complete garden plans from Nancy J. Ondra and Stephanie Cohen will have you puttering in the dirt later than you ever thought possible. Here are the vines, trees, shrubs, and flowers that you'll love to tend through September and even into November—plants that thrive in early autumn's mild temperatures and gentle rainfall, and contribute color, texture, and beauty well past summer's peak.
