Enjoy a tour through the autumn landscape and look for new and existing sources of fall color. Many trees and shrubs provide a last colorful show before winter sets in. The ornamental grasses reach their peak this time of year, but many other perennials provide a colorful show with fall flowers or fall colored foliage. Then make a note to add a few of your favorites to your fall containers or garden beds.
