Fall Color (Updated Oct. 7) - The Sugar Maples are turning, with a few already showing full fall color. Check out the maple tree next to the Wilson Rose Garden and a couple near the Nelson Shrub Rose Garden on Three-Mile Drive. The Yellow Birches past the Oak Collection are glowing a golden yellow. Sumacs are producing deep shades of red. Dogwoods and Viburnum shrubs have maroon leaves. The prairie grasses are golden russet, and there's still some color in the sunflowers, golden asters and New England Asters. The color should reach 50 percent around Oct. 14, with peak color anticipated around Oct. 21 onward.
