Trees for Autumn Colour

Autumn foliage is especially important in the garden during September, October and November to bring some wonderful colours to the darker months. In all varieties the richness of the colours will be better on some soils than others and will vary from year to year.

With a bit of forward planning medium and larger gardens can enjoy a spectacular display of reds, yellows, purples and orange foliage. Or you can plant trees that give you beautiful crab apples or berries. These colours can last for several weeks. The below selection of well known ornamental trees will provide you with some fantastic colours throughout the autumn months.

Some of these species are offered large and small, with some of the smaller species being able to be grown in a pot. If you are limited for space but still want some firework displays of colour then we can still help you!

We also offer a range of Trees For Birds which produce beautiful foliage colours as well as growing berries and crab apples for feeding and providing habitat for birds.

The below symbol indicates the trees good for autumn colour. Keep an eye out for these on the product pages, our labels and catalogues.
