I would like to incorporate some plants with fall interest in my garden. What do you recommend?
In addition to the wonderful late-flowering perennials such as chrysanthemums or asters, certain trees and shrubs really offer intense fall color. For brilliant reds, red-oranges and purples choose: maples, sweetgums and dogwoods. For clear yellows choose: birches, ginkgoes and clethra.
Refer to the NYBG guide Autumn Color to Dazzle in Your Garden for more ideas.
