Trees for Autumn Colour

Autumn foliage is especially important in the garden. 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 and oranges lasting several weeks.
