Trees for Autumn Colour

When you think of autumn colour, it’s deciduous trees that come to mind - the red, orange and gold of their leaves falling gently from the trees and crunching underfoot on woodland walks, brightening our days as the nights draw in. We’ve carefully selected the most colourful trees for stunning autumn displays, with varieties suitable for even small gardens. Read our guide for all you need to know about choosing and growing the best autumn trees for you.

Choose your Trees for Autumn Colour

If you have the space you can choose trees covering the whole autumnal palette of Red (Juneberry), Orange (Snowy Mespilus) and Gold (Judas Tree). For smaller spaces, our favourites include John Downie Crabapple (Orange and Yellow) and Cherry Blossom The Bride (red). Cherry Blossoms are generally a good choice for a spectrum of Autumnal colour - especially Autumnalis Rosea. As for the quintessential Autumn trees? A large Sweetgum(Red, Orange and Yellow) or a more compact Katsura (Yellow, Orange, Pink, Red and Purple!)

Where to grow your Trees for Autumn Colour

Trees with vibrant autumn colour are generally hardy and suited to all fertile, well-drained soils. Make sure to assist growing young trees by staking them and watering in well after planting. For maximum visual impact, choose a position which can be seen from a window on a cold day, or by a path, and always check the mature size of your tree to allow enough space for growth.

Trees for Autumn Colour Care Tips

Give your trees one last watering when the leaves begin to fall, then hold off throughout the Winter. Rake up and compost fallen leaves to allow water and oxygen into the soil. After raking, put a good compost mulch around your tree. Pruning can usually be done in the dormant season - check when this is for your individual tree in our Care Guides.
