Cynthia Beacom, Hunt County Master Gardener, says fall is great time to plant perennial flowering plants, such as phlox and lantanta, and also to plant bulbs, such as daffodils.  Planting in the fall will allow perennials to establish their roots during the winter months, and bulbs will sprout and blossom in the spring.  Cynthia enjoys spider lillies, which are planted from bulbs, but hard to find.  She recommends ordering through "The Bulb Hunter," who gathers rare bulbs for sale.
