Celebrate Autumn in the Midwest
Flowers and fruits
Dress up your landscape with orange mums. For orange-foliage trees and shrubs, add an apple serviceberry tree (Amelanchier x grandiflora), American hornbeam (Carpinus caroliniana), witch hazel 'Diane' (Hamamelis x intermedia) and dwarf or large fothergilla (Fothergilla gardenii or F. major).
Taste a lesser-known orange fruit at September's Mitchell Persimmon Festival in Mitchell, Indiana (mitchellpersimmonfestival.org).
