Shrubs With Fall Color

September is here and soon it will feel like fall.  I like to have plants in my yard that give nice fall color because after summer is over and flowers are mostly done blooming, I miss the color they offered.  There are flowers you can buy (mums, ornamental kale, etc), but why not add some shrubs to you landscape that also give fall color?  Here's a few that are beautiful in the fall:

Red/Orange: American Cranberry Viburnum, Barberry, Burning Bush (a personal favorite), Koreanspice Viburnum (their spring flowers smell wonderful too!), Sumac, any Spirea variety, Serviceberry.

Purple: Dogwood

Yellow: Witchhazel, and Rosa species Roses
