What to plant for Autumn Colour and Interest

AUTUMN COLOUR
When the chlorophyll that keep leaves green during the growing season and 
helps the plant absorb light for photosynthesis, depletes, we are allowed  
to enjoy the yellow and orange pigments in the leaves and when new 
chemicals are released by the plant we can enjoy the rich crimsons. 
Layers of Autumn colour in a garden look fabulous. These are some
