Fall color shrubs are selected for many reasons, but their gorgeous seasonal color is what attracts most. The fall season elicits a menagerie of color, and injecting a color scheme into the landscape takes careful planning. It is wise to remember that not only is foliage important, 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.
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.
