  • Glorious October Colour

    There are many trees and shrubs to choose for autumn colour. One of the best is Liquidambar, or 'sweet gum'. The species Liquidambar styracifluar can reach 20m - ideal for a large garden and is a superb specimen tree with maple shaped leaves. The smaller variety 'Worplesdon' ultimately reaches 12m and is well suited to this climate, both trees produce yellow/pink/red or deep burgundy leaves depending on the site and season.

    Several oak species give fantastic autumn colour, Quercus coccinea (Scarlet oak), Quercus rubra (Red oak) and Quercus palustris (Pin oak) are all stately trees with rich orange red autumn foliage.

    Many ornamental cherries (Prunus species) have good autumn colour, including the wild cherry P.avium, autumn cherry P.subhirtella Autumnalis and Japanese cherries such as P. Okame.

    The dwarf cherry Prunus Kojo-no-mai - is stunning in autumn as well as spring and proves there is a cherry tree suitable for every garden - looks great in a pot on a patio too.

    A lovely tree for a small garden with spring and autumn interest is Amelanchier - the June berry. Amelanchier lamarckii or A. Canadensis (very similar) and the varieties Ballerina and Snowflakes all have white flowers in spring and orange autumn colour.

    If you are planning to plant native hedges this autumn and would like to have autumn colour consider including the Guelder Rose, Viburnum opulus. Particularly good for moist soils it is supplied as a bare-root plant from November to March.

    Enjoy the autumn - whatever the weather!
