Accentuate Fall Color - One sure way to highlight the fall colors in your yard is to pair them with evergreens. Green looks smashing against bold reds and oranges. And bright yellows practically sing next to a dark green background.
In my yard: Cottinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’ . considered a tree but I grow it as a shrub, whacking it back to the ground each spring to keep the height lower and make it bush out. easily grows tall in a season. glows purple with the sun behind it.
