Autumn color of some native shrubs

Downingtown, PA

In late October 2015 from southeast PA, the photos are: Tall Black Chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa elata) in orange color; Summersweet Pepperbush (Clethra alnifolia) in yellow color; Dwarf Witch-Alder (Fothergilla gardeni) in red fall color, Common Spicebush (Lindera benzoin) in yellow; and Common Witchhazel (Hamamelis virginiana) in yellow.

Yes very nice. My Lindera benzoin have lost all their leaves already. My Calycanthus floridus is taking over the yellow show in that garden now though.

Wahoo, that's a lot of nice fall color!
I'm gazing across at a small Cornus florida (red/maroon) and it's buddy, an even smaller Calycanthus floridus (bright yellow)..how nice they will look in years to come. Fall is fabulous!

Eastern Wahoo is a cool native shrub. I have only seen one big one at Jenkins Arboretum in se PA.
