It's finally fall! And what better way to welcome the season than with a few of our favorite trees and shrubs for fall color? From Maple and Aspen trees to Loropetalum and Nandina shrubs, we have the most dazzling selections for the cooler months.

After all, fall is the best time of year, from pumpkin spice and crisp breezes to cozy sweaters and planning your perfect garden. So roll up those sleeves, and get the dirt on our favorites for the season!

1. Bloodgood Japanese Maple

The Bloodgood Japanese Maple is a sure and steady choice for fall color, boasting vibrant red shades that are attention-grabbing in the landscape. 

It's easy to care for and retains its color well throughout the seasons, making it great for using as a focal point, accent plant or border. Plus, its bark is a unique silver color for added appeal. 

2. Autumn Gold Ginkgo

Autumn Purple Ash to Autumn Gold Ginkgo

You get the easy, full growth of the Ginkgo plus warm, gilded hues in the fall with the Autumn Gold Ginkgo. It's both fast-growing and good-looking, with bright, golden foliage that's second to none.

And the Autumn Gold's open, symmetrical branching means you see more color than with other Maple varieties!

3. Autumn Blaze Maple 

We can't talk about fall without highlighting our Autumn Blaze Maple Tree! This special tree merges the best benefits of two separate trees, the classic Red Maple and Silver Maple, into one brilliant package.

And it lives up to its name, delivering blazing color in an elegant form. Plus, it's one of the fastest-growing varieties available, making it ideal for providing quick shade.

4. Quaking Aspen

 Quaking Aspen Tree

This quick-growing Aspen flaunts fabulous color - so much so that it'll send you shaking! Its gorgeous, golden fall hues are truly picturesque on a slender, elegantly shaped tree. When breezes come blowing, the unique leaves will twist and shake, giving this Aspen its fun name.

The Quaking Aspen requires minimal care, and its bark is a lovely light grey, contrasting nicely with its bright foliage color.

5. Ever Red Loropetalum

Ever Red Loropetalum

Loropetalum shrubs are a solid choice for fall color, and Ever Red is no exception! In spring, you'll get beautiful red blooms, and in the fall you can continue to enjoy its bold, burgundy foliage.

Great for borders, hedges and screens, as well as containers, this versatile beauty is a cheerful addition to the landscape. 

6. Fire Power Nandina
