Watch for fall color on Netleaf Hackberry (Celtis laevigata var. reticulata), Little Leaf Sumac (Rhus microphylla), Skunkbush Sumac (Rhus aromatica var. trilobata), Mexican-buckeye (Ungnadia speciosa), native Plumbago (Plumbago scandens), Arizona Rosemallow (Hibiscus biseptus) and Desert Rosemallow (Hibiscus coulteri). Some of your trees, shrubs, and herbaceous perennials will begin to lose their leaves for the season: Desert-willow (Chilopsis linearis), Elephant tree (Bursera spp.), Jatropha spp., Velvet-leaf Senna (Senna lindheimeriana) and Desert Senna (Senna covesii).
Aloe (Aloe ferox –Aloe dawei) & Blue Euphorbia (Euphorbia rigida). One of the best early winter color combinations. Brilliant redorange flowers of Tree Aloe, a South African leaf succulent, that also attracts hummingbirds, in contrast to the outstanding citron-yellow flowers of Blue Euphorbia.
