Flower Garden Designs: Three
Sep 14, Shrubs for Fall Color. Barberry is a deciduous shrub that really embraces the jewel tones of fall. Its leaves turn shades of red, orange, yellow, and purple. They also have large red berries that will hang on for a long time, providing winter interest as well.
Witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) is the perfect autumn shrub, turning golden-yellow in fall and even bearing yellow spider-y flowers in late winter. A native plant hardy to zone 3, it can grow to be 12 to 15 feet tall and wide so give it plenty of room. It’s leaves turn bright orange in fall.
Sep 17, Dwarf fothergilla (Fothergilla gardenii) is a native shrub with leaves that form a kaleidoscope of fall hues, including gold, red, purple and orange. This stunner grows in part shade to full sun, which is the secret to the best fall color. In spring, branches open white blooms that.
