Fall Color Report
Fall Color Report Forecast
Here at Biltmore, hundreds of vibrant chrysanthemums and salvias fill the Walled Garden, Estate Entry, and Winery beds during the fall while the mountains of western North Carolina are dressed in autumn colors.
"Western North Carolina has had an abundance of rain this growing season and our forests are as green as they can be.
Healthy trees in full leaf set the stage for a great fall season when autumn’s typically dry, cool weather arrives. Look for dogwoods and sourwoods to begin the estate’s colorful transformation; they’ll start to lose their summer green as late September brings shorter days and cooler mornings. At higher elevations just a short drive from the estate, the best color is currently expected to arrive in early October, with peak color coming down in elevation, reaching Asheville in late October through early November. Be sure to check local weather forecasts: an early frost means an earlier arrival of color."
—Parker Andes, Biltmore's Director of Horticulture
