Fall Colors in Florida – Yes, We Have Some (You Just Have to Look a Bit Harder) – Eric Hoyer
I’ve only lived in Citrus County for 3 ½ years but I have learned that a good percentage of residents are from places such as Massachusetts, New York, and Michigan. I am originally from western New York (Buffalo) so I feel your pain when it comes to the lack of vibrant fall foliage in October. However, although more subtle, Florida does offer some fall coloration if you know where to look. Below are some places and plants/trees that can provide a glimpse of what we came to get used to in the northern and northeastern states. This list is based on some research of fall foliage in Florida; I cannot claim to be familiar with many of these places. The trees, however, I can vouch for!
