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.
As of the first week of October, the Garden is still mostly wearing its summer green. Fall colors are confined to the fringes. Most of the Garden’s deciduous trees have yet to change. However, guests will notice a few small spots of bright autumnal color. We’ll continue to update our website weekly throughout the season. Dedicated leaf peepers should watch this space!
