Fall Foliage Names: Colorful choices from Aspen to Zinnia

September 26, 2013 Linda Rosenkrantz

It’s autumn. We know it by the delicious briskness in the air, and the flaming colors of the leaves and flowers of  fall around us—a number of which just happening to have wonderfully baby-appropriate names. So here are some of the lovely fall foliage-producing trees, along with some flowers that bloom in the fall, tra la.


The Japanese and Fall-Blooming Anemone are autumn flowers that retain a spring-like palette of pink, white and pale purple in contrast to the deeper tones of other seasonal flowers. Anemone is a Greek nymph name that’s beginning to pop at the most extreme edge of the appellation garden, along with Azalea and Amaryllis.
