Fall Color Update: November 3, 2017

Few things are lovelier than the Garden ablaze with fall color. But when do the leaves actually start to change? Factors like temperature, light, and water ensure that the onset and duration of fall colors are difficult to predict perfectly.

While there are still pockets of yellow, orange, and red throughout the Garden, we’ve moved past the peak of fall color. Late October’s warm dry weather made for some beautiful days, but also caused many of the Garden’s leaves to dry out and fall. Over the upcoming weeks and months the “bones” of the Garden will be exposed as winter sets in.
