Fall Foliage

leaves in autumn forestIt is approaching the time when all the trees turn into beautiful colors right before fall turns into winter. The start of school turns into Halloween, which turns into Thanksgiving, which means red, yellow and orange trees. It is one of the most beautiful times of the year, and a good way to end the summer. Pay close attention to some of the most beautiful foliage during the fall:

Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgos are infamous for turning into a lively yellow color each fall. These trees are related to conifers, but they have fan shaped leaves rather than needles. They often grow up to 80 feet and have an umbrella looking shape. These trees are very diverse and can thrive in the city streets or in a suburban neighborhood. The female trees bear small fruits, about the size of a cherry tomato.

Smokebush

These trees can either be groomed as shrubs or small trees. In the summer, they produce small yellow flowers with fuzzy pink hairs. Once fall approaches, the flowers fade away and the leaves turn into a rich yellow/orange color. The green leaves turn orange while the purple leaves turn into a scarlet red color. These trees are native to the southeastern part of the United States, including Texas. Their rich, lush color glows in yards and gardens, and provide a beautiful change of color for every season.

Red-Twig Dogwood

These plants are named for the color of their bark in the fall and winter time. In the summer, they are covered with white berries with hints of green and blue. They also have a purple and red tint in their leaves. In the fall, the flowers die and the bark of the plants turn red and gold. They give a bright and colorful trace to winter landscapes.

Maple

The Northeastern part of the United States is very populated with this tree. The hillsides populated with maple trees turn into gorgeous shades of red, orange and yellow. They can grow up to 75 feet in height and 40 feet wide. There are many different varieties of this tree and all types are unique in their fall foliage. These trees are one of the most loved in the fall, so you don’t want to miss their beautiful transformation.

Fall foliage makes the transition from summer into winter a beautiful one. When the temperature starts dropping and the fall holidays come around, it is a colorful and charming time of year. There are many different types of trees that transform in the fall that will take your breath away.
