Are you keeping up with the color trends and making plans to use them in your displays?  Marsala, Pantone's color of the year, is the color of red wine.  Here's a few recommended plants for a marsala-color display of flowers and foliage:

Crimson Sunset Maple

Bloodgood and Crimson Queen Japanese Maples

Summer Chocolate Mimosa

  Spilled Wine Weigela

Miss Molly Buddleia

Rose Glow Barberry

Summer Wine Ninebark

Quick Fire Hydrangea

Shenandoah Switch Grass

Song Siren Laura Achillea

Pardon Me Daylily

Carnival Series Plum Crazy Heuchera

Husker Red Penstemon

Sunsparkler Cherry Tart Sedum


 Spilled Wine Weigela  

  Get marsala infused fall foliage with Oakleaf Hydrangea, Lynwood Gold Forsythia and
Winterthur Viburnum.
 Marsala pairs well with many colors including blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. Also, try teal, turquoise, amber, and golden yellows.
