Fall is the optimal time of year to plant, and it’s right around the corner – shrubs, trees, grass, etc.  As we had mentioned a few weeks back, “Summer is for planning and Fall is for planting”.  Now is the time to act as summer begins its mad dash to the finish line.  Call Sweeney’s today and schedule your Fall plantings now before it’s too late. To get your creative juices flowing, consider the following best trees and shrubs for fall color:

Sugar Maple – distinctive flower and bark characteristics with stunning burnt orange/red leaves.

Apple Serviceberry – small tree or large multi stemmed shrub providing all season color and interest.

Chokecherry – small tree or large shrub with red leaves and black fruit.

Amur Maple – fragrant white spring flowers and scarlet leaves in the Fall.

Burning Bush – deciduous shrub with blazing red leaves.

Doublefile Viburnum – tiered branching gives a layered look with reddish/purplish leaves.

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower”.
