    Perennials are always good: Ice Pansy, Ageratum, Black Eyed Susan, Autumn Joy Sedum(as said above). Ornamental Grasses shoot up their plumes this time of year, Annuals are still going strong. Be careful with the Mums because if planted they tend to get BIG and fall apart in the middle, I like them best as an annual. As far as shrubs go, variety's like Burning Bush don't bloom but have leaves that turn bright red like a maple tree. Hydrangea's still have their blooms, Variegated False Holly, Rose-of-Sharon.
