We Love Fall Color...
It's Chemistry
.
Amur Maple on Bank in Fall
Chlorophyll is the green of plants and it is the main pigment responsible for photosynthesis.  As days shorten, nights cool and plants dry, the spent chlorophyll is not replaced and as the green fades, other colors begin to show.  

Carotenoides that help transfer light energy to chlorophyll give us the golden yellow of aspen, Norway maple, Scouler's willow and water birch. (we have a special on Amur Maple as seen in picture) 

Anthocyanins are in plants with purple and red flowers and plants with purple and reddish foliage. Most of these show off in brighter red fall colors as well. Anthocyanins create colors ranging from pink to deep purple. Often, the more light a plant receives, the deeper its fall colors will be. Vine maple, big-tooth maple, mountain ash, serviceberry and red-twig dogwood all grow well in moderate shade and still give us intense orange-red through purple fall colors. Anthocyanin is actually produced in fall as chlorophyll is broken down. Orange leaves as in Spiraea and ninebark are a combination of anthocyanins and carotenoides.

Tannin gives us the beige, tan and brown of autumn. Tannin is contained in all leaves in varying amounts. Some trees such as Bur Oak and many grasses have high concentrations of tannin and their leaves turn amber in fall.

 Great fall colors!   I hope tonight's cold doesn't wreck it. 
 We have yet more plant material arriving next week even as we make room and offer you some incredible specials to boost next year's garden. 
 Seed collecting was productive from Monitor Pass in the snow to North of Truckee.  Eric also picked up a number of very hardy species from above 11,000ft in Colorado last week.
 FALL really is for planting. 4" plants should get into the ground ASAP but Trees and Shrubs are happy being planted anytime you're willing to dig the hole.
 Come to our Winterizing Class on the 26th or check-out the old hand-out.
 As ALWAYS we love your  feed-back questions and comments.  We learn from YOU all the time.
Thank YOU!
Sincerely,
Rob VanDyke / Eric Larusson
