Fall: An Especially Beautiful Time at Biltmore in Asheville, NC

Yellow and purple ironweed flowers and late summer goldenrods are hard to miss as summer winds down. An abundance of acorns and hickory nuts are falling, much to the delight of squirrels and turkeys preparing for winter.

Dogwoods are developing light shades of red, as are the sourwood and tupelo trees. The colors of the dogwoods will become deeper and more rich as the season progresses.

We are seeing that maple trees in surrounding forests and in the gardens have begun their annual transition from summer’s verdant green. Trees in the surrounding mountains at higher elevations will be turning very soon. The warm sunny days and cooler nighttime temperatures will accelerate autumn color as September comes to a close.
