Aster 'Barr's Pink'  - find more than 650 aster plants at RHS Garden Wisley

Look out for the Equinox Borders, which opened in 2017 and are designed to peak in both autumn and spring. Asters are the stars of the show, along with autumn-flowering Kniphofia (red-hot poker), hardy fuchsias and Hesperantha (crimson flag lily).


Harlow Carr

Upper Tarn autumn colour at RHS Garden Harlow CarrThe Upper Tarn boasts fabulous autumn colour, and wonderful seasonal colour is also expected in the Woodland Garden. Despite the long, hot summer, Harlow Carr still saw some rainfall, which ensured that the trees there retained their leaves, so expect a stunning display.


Hyde Hall

RHS Garden Hyde Hall autumn colourThe Hilltop Garden and Woodland take on some particularly striking autumn hues at this time of the year.


Lady Anne's view at RHS Garden RosemoorThe Foliage Garden transforms as summer gives way to autumn, with the grasses taking on gold and red colours. In Lady Anne's Arboretum, underfoot the autumn crocus (colchicum) add extra colour among the rare and unusual trees.
