Fall Color Report

Fall Color Report

Here at Biltmore, hundreds of vibrant chrysanthemums and salvias fill the Walled Garden, Estate Entry, and Winery beds during the fall while the mountains of western North Carolina are dressed in autumn colors.

"Not much change from last week: dogwood and sourwood trees continue to lead the way providing solid color displays in many locations. Spicebush is starting to show a blush of yellow in the understory (the layer of vegetation beneath the main canopy of a forest) along with some ferns just beginning to turn. Our other trees are definitely biding their time, but with these cooler night temperatures, we can expect the procession of colors. Until then, the sourwood (the only tree in its genus) and the dogwood are the estate’s main sources of fall color."

Parker Andes, Biltmore's Director of Horticulture
