It's no secret that fall is here. A big clue is all the leaves and fruit have stolen the show.

Sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua 'Worplesdon')

Unique fruit and colorful deciduous leaves are the epitome of a fall showstopper. These handsome trees are growing near the Amphitheater.

Red Osier Dogwood (Cornus sericea)

The red bark and white fruit are a beautiful contrasting site to behold. These are also growing near the Amphitheater.

Red Jewelâ„¢ Crabapple (Malus 'Jewelcole')

These trees are raining red! They can be seen in front of the Rose House.

If you haven't seen our new Six Bridges Trail, that's reason enough to come to the Garden. Come mosey along Red Butte Creek and enjoy the cool fall weather.

See you in the Garden!
