Autumn leaf color

Published: Friday, November 22, 2013 at 11:19 AM.

Some of the trees which will add fall eye appeal to your landscape are the Golden rain-tree, Red Swamp Myrtle, Dogwood, Sweet Gum, Crape Myrtle, and the Tulip tree.  Since the Chinese Tallow (Popcorn Tree) is on Florida’s invasive plant list we do not recommend it as a landscape plant.  Each of these has its own unique color, but these can change somewhat from year to year, according to seasonal conditions.  However, choosing one or two of these plants will assure you of some fall change in foliage hues.
