Fall Color Update: October 23, 2017

Few things are lovelier than the Garden ablaze with fall color. But when do the leaves actually start to change? Factors like temperature, light, and water ensure that the onset and duration of fall colors are difficult to predict perfectly.

The bright reds, oranges, and yellows have finally arrived and it truly feels like fall in the Garden. There are still some trees wearing summer green, but – as this photo gallery shows – there’s plenty of fiery foliage to enjoy. Weather will dictate how quickly the rest of the leaves change and how long they leaves last. But we’d suggest visiting soon.
