It’s because they are cute flowers. Emily spies the ones she wants as she stops her cart:

Each pansy is like a little painting. Small bursts of colors on each petal are in turn part of the larger burst of color the entire flower brings. The orange is perfect for when it’s fall and the white for early winter.

Emily picks out a few and moves on to the next of her fall flowers.

CELOSIA

She can use Cockscomb to create something especially amazing:

A dry land coral reef! Many people compare the varieties of Cockscomb to coral. If you really want to go with the theme, a few fish garden stakes would fit in well.

Now Emily is off to collect her final fall flower.

DAHLIA

Emily may have a slight challenge with this fall flower.

That’s why she is buying the dwarf version. It only grows to 12 inches in height, so she won’t have to worry about caring for a 5 foot or higher plant.

They do look beautiful though:
