Almost everyone appreciates the beautiful displays of warm colour put on by Canada’s deciduous trees every autumn. Unfortunately, many Canadians only get to enjoy this lovely autumn foliage when walking or driving down the street. Give yourself something to look at on your own property by planting a tree, or several trees, that looks stunning in the autumn. Here are five great suggestions that may work for your yard:
The sugar maple’s leaves are not only captivating in the fall, when they turn a deep shade of red, but also all throughout the year beforehand, when they cycle through various shades of green, yellow, and orange.
The aspen is the perfect tree for Canadian yards, as it thrives throughout most of Canada’s climate zones. In the fall, the leaves of the aspen turn a bright shade of yellow, which really stand out among any surrounding pine trees.
The leaves of the umbrella-shaped gingko tree take on a deep, golden glow during the fall months. The distinctive, fan-shaped leaves also add an extra layer of beauty and intrigue to this already charming tree.
In the fall, the leaves of the smoketree turn a unique mix of yellow and red. Smoketrees are interesting plants because they can look like small trees when pruned, or shrubs if allowed to grow more freely.
Finally, the North American sassafras is a must-have addition to the yard of any fall enthusiast. They change from a fresh summer green to a beautiful fall conflagration of yellow, orange, red, and purple.
