Bring fall color to your garden with flowering plants and trees

Vireyas come in fall colors of red, orange and yellow as well as pink to white. (Voltaire Moise/Special to West Hawaii Today)

The weather is a bit crazy now. Temperatures remain warm but things are about to change. Fall has officially arrived in the northern hemisphere since the sun has moved south of the equator. The autumnal equinox for us is spring for those south of the equator. As the sun moves further from us, days are shorter and plants tend to slow their growth.
