Tara Heibel, owner of Sprout Home, says, "In the coldest months, it may be difficult to find some flower power, but Amaryllis is your all star player." This bloom is in season during November and December and comes in a variety of shades from deep red velvet to airy bright pink.

If you've never heard of black cosmos before, prepare to meet your new favorite fall flower. Eerie and dark, black cosmos are "great for adding a small bit of black to an arrangement without overshadowing anything," says Brie Walter, owner and designer of Brie's Honeybees & Flowers.

If you're looking for a delicate flower that gives your bouquet a rustic look, consider andromeda. "Incorporating the curved and winding habit into your bouquet and arrangements will heighten the visual impact with grace and movement," Heibel says.

Even though eucalyptus is a year-round plant, it's a key player in any floral arrangement when you want a bohemian feel. It will make a classic bouquet feel a little wild and undone.

Courtney Sayner, owner of The Floral Loft, says, "these small, unassuming, brownish-grey pods that form as the delicate scabiosa flowers fade are a great addition to anything missing the touch of rustic accent that defines fall." Consider choosing these pods if you're looking to add some edge to your wedding-day flowers. Sayner says, "I like to pepper these into otherwise subdued arrangements that may be too safe."

Okay, so persimmons aren't technically a flower, but they work just as a flower would in floral arrangements. Plus, they reach their peak orange color during the fall!

Jasmine will elevate the softness of an arrangement. If you want to incorporate it into more than your bouquet, Heibel says "you can also use these vines to extend the length of your floral across a table or to complement the sway of your dress."

Think of snowberries as the go-to for creating a mystical fall vibe at your wedding. Adorable in size, "these long supple stems, adorned with assorted opaque berries, are excellent accents in bouquets," says Sayner. Not sure what flowers to pair with these accent berries? Sayner says snowberries "look stunning paired with antique hydrangea for a feminine fall palette, or with some dusty miller and white amaryllis for a winter white centerpiece."

The nontraditional flower comes in variations of yellow and orange (aka a perfect combo for a fall palette). Walter says, "If you are wanting to move away from a traditional bloomy arch, but still want the colors that flowers add, this is a great option that will really give that pop of color but keep it feeling natural and garden style."

Anemone is the type of the flower you want to use to add a playful touch to your bouquets or centerpieces. Heibel says, "While the petals will win you over, the flower's center (a dark dome of pistils surrounded by a halo of stamen) will undoubtedly draw your attention."
