Fall Color Report: October 29, 2021

Autumn colors are beginning to change more rapidly in the woods at The Morton Arboretum. Enjoy the golds, reds, oranges, and greens in the Maple Collection; the East Woods, especially around the Big Rock Visitor Station; the Sumac Collection and the Asian collections; the Schulenberg Prairie; and the area of the Thornhill Education Center, including nearby gardens.

The development of leaf color always depends on the weather, with cool nights and sunny days providing the richest array of hues. It seems likely that conditions in the near future will be favorable.

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.
