Nothing lights up a landscape like autumn. Celebrate the change of seasons by choosing bushes from our inventory that put on a colorful show between the end of summer and the onset of winter. Fall color shrubs are selected for many reasons, but their gorgeous seasonal color is what attracts most.
Layers of Fall Color Shrubs
The fall season elicits a menagerie of color. However, injecting a color scheme into the landscape takes careful planning. It is wise to remember that not only is foliage important for the hues of autumn, but flowers, berries and seed pods add additional color and interest. Choose fall color shrubs that complement each other and brim with interest all year long. The Chippewa or Peach Sorbet Blueberries (vaccinium) are ornamental, fruit producing and have striking fall colors. An eye-catching combination is created when the purple-orange of the Black Chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa) mixes with the fire-red Burning Bush (Euonymus alatus) placed in the background. Dozens of these color combinations are available, and it may take a few seasons before you can nail the exact effect you’re pursuing.
Autumn Bushes: More Than Colorful Leaves
Fall color shrubs can produce lovely landscapes even after the colorful leaves have fallen. Shrubs such as the Red Twigged Dogwood (Cornus) and the Yellow Twig Dogwood (Cornus) have bright red and yellow stems to lighten up a barren fall or winter garden. For spectacular fall views, you can find fall color attributes in the hydrangea, viburnum, Beautyberry (Callicarpa), and Ninebark (Physocarpus) families. Evergreen shrubs add a welcome touch of verdant life to drab winter gardens. A Patti O Box™ Japanese Holly needs no care or pruning to maintain a tidy and refined profile. The Emerald ‘n Gold Wintercreeper edges your beds with low-growing bright green leaves accented by delicious gold. Choose a PJM Rhododendron for stunning lavender flowers in spring and rich, full dark green foliage that deepens to a delightful purple-russet shade in winter.
