Fall interest is exactly what it sounds like – interest created by the plant in the fall months. Fall interest, or fall colors, can be created by foliage, berries, seed pods, and expired blooms. The type of fall interest will vary depending on the variety of shrub. Michigan is fortunate to have a multitude of plants and trees with beautiful fall colors!
Fall interest can also be the wildlife that chooses to visit a shrub in the fall. Birds, for example, will often stop by to eat the seed pods of expired blooms. While woodland critters, such as foxes and raccoons, may enjoy munching on the berries of certain shrubs.
