Hello! We are definitely in the dog days of Summer, but here at Riverbend Nurseries, we have planted our pumpkin seeds and have started our Mums for them to be ready this Fall! In just a couple short months, apple-and-pumpkin-anything will be on our minds (or my mind anyway! LOVE a good pumpkin spice latte!) and then the leaves will start turning their brilliant colors (OH yeah). If you, like me, love Fall and feel rejuvenated when those first few cooler mornings start coming, planting a tree with awesome Fall foliage might be right for you!
This is a short little post today listing out some of the most magnificent trees for stunning Fall color!
Ya can’t go wrong with these Maples:
See what I mean?! Any of these trees will offer that blazing orangey- red color we Fall lovers admire so much .
And look at this beauty- Metasequoia is an awesome tree for Fall color!

Also, Redbuds like ‘Forest Pansy’ and ‘Hearts of Gold’ give off great color-

River Birch, Sweetgum, and Ginkgo biloba are awesome too!
And did you know that Dogwoods, Japanese Maples, and Crepe Myrtles offer very pretty Fall foliage, too?
All of these and more are offered at Riverbend Nurseries!
We’re available to answer questions you have and help you select a tree that will work great for your space.
So, as we slowly begin to daydream about Fall, remember that starting in September it is an awesome time to plant shrubs and trees.
Think of Riverbend Nurseries for your Fall planting and we look forward to seeing you soon!
