Double Duty Plants for Flowers and Fall Foliage

November 29, 2017

I never realized how many plants known for their flowers also provide us with beautiful autumn color. We've had a long mild autumn this year. Here's a list of a few plants that I selected for blooms which also provide autumn color:  Crape Myrtles, Dogwoods, Solomon's Seal, Spice Bush (viburnum), Forsythia, Beauty Berry, Hydrangea and Solomon's Seal to name a few.  Consider this when planting to extend your garden enjoyment.

 

The forsythia is starting its yellow show against the Japanese Maple.  

 

I took this photo of the potted White Hydrangea against the table cloth to highlight it's intense color.  The older blossoms are wine colored.  You can make out a new white bud in the front of the bush.
