Fall Color Report


Fall Color Report

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.


"This week I have spotted great beginnings of coloration in our sourwood and black gum trees. The dogwoods are showing some rich color, with red maple trees not far behind. Offering a beautiful contrast against our evergreen white pines are our yellow poplars’ striking gold and bronze foliage. Just outside my window, a beautiful Virginia creeper vine is turning a deep scarlet. As the days continue to grow shorter, cooler nights will spark the flame of our Autumn Blaze maples; this will kick off the glorious progression of autumn coloration in the mountains."

Parker Andes, Biltmore's Director of Horticulture
