Fall Color Report: November 19, 2021

The last of the autumn leaf color can be seen this week in the trees of The Morton Arboretum. The best of the remaining yellow and red can be seen in the sugar maples and oaks in the Oak Collection near Parking Lot 8 and in the East Woods between parking lots 10 and 15. Here and there, especially in the Appalachia and China collections near parking lots 16 and 17, a few other trees still have red or golden leaves. On the West Side, witch-hazels, larch, and bald-cypress near Lake Marmo are still golden, as are the grasses in the Schulenberg Prairie.

Come enjoy this last glimmer of nature’s fall colors before Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum begins to shine.

About the Fall Color Report

The Fall Color Report is written by the Arboretum’s Manager of Plant Records, Ed Hedborn. It is typically published on Fridays through Autumn to give members and guests a chance to plan their weekend visits. The Arboretum also publishes a weekly Bloom Report in springtime.
