What Houzz contributors are saying:

Flowers by Christmas. Take advantage of one of the great payoffs of our region: Plant cool-season annuals (Iceland poppies, pansies, calendulas and more) this month or early next month, and you should have blooms by late November or early December. Blooming slows down a bit over the winter, then flourishes even more in early spring. Make sure you provide a sunny spot and a bed of bed of loose, well-drained soil that's fortified with compost. Even a few pots of cool-season annuals will make a splash. It’s amazing how eye catching just a few Iceland poppies — their crepe-like flowers fluttering on improbably slender stems — appear when little else is blooming. 'Champagne Bubbles', shown here, is a colorful, dependable strain. The "Iceland" in the name is not poetic license; the plants are hardy and perennial in cold climates. In mild California they shine in fall, winter and spring, then burn out in summer.
One of the signature trademarks of Matisse and fauvism was the use of complementary colors. Complementary colors are opposite each other on the color wheel. These are high in contrast and can add drama and excitement to a garden.Combinations of yellow and violet, orange and blue or green and red plant varieties are popular examples of complementary colors often used together.

Plant cool-season flowers. Sow cool-season flowers (and ornamental foliage plants, such as flowering kale) from seed now or set them out as small plants through late fall. Early fall planting can bring flowers in time for the holidays; later plantings can last through spring. Iceland poppy (shown) is a classic. Plant it now in masses for a lively cool-season display.

Plant flower seeds. Seeds for flowers like delphinium, larkspur and poppy can be sown now. Be sure to prepare your bed before sowing seeds — remove weeds, amend your soil for proper drainage and soil health, and be sure you know what type of sun requirements your seeds need.While many flowers prefer full sun, some perform better when given some shade. Read the back of your seed packet for information light and on how deep to sow specific seeds, as seeds planted too deep can have a difficult time germinating.
Plant now for blooms fall through spring. It's one of mild California's privileges: If you get them in the ground early enough, a good number of annual flowers can start blooming as early as Thanksgiving and will continue through winter into early spring. These include Iceland poppies (shown) and other cool-season annuals, such as calendulas, pansies, snapdragons, stock and violas.The target date for setting out cool-season annuals in most California climates is September 20; hold off for a couple more weeks in hot inland climates. And postpone planting if a hot spell is coming on. Most cool-season annuals need full sun. Make sure you choose a spot that will remain sunny as the sun's angle changes through the winter. Provide temporary shade during extra-hot weather in early fall.
