Fall color in Arizona

Thinking about a new tree for the front yard, wanting something with fall color. To get that great look of changing colors, you need to pick from deciduous trees. Further investigation proves that deciduous trees are very messy even if just once a year. I now know I will be choosing from more native evergreen trees for my front yard.

One cool thing I noticed was that even though I will not get the great fall color from a tree like a red push pistache tree, was that I DO get fall color with plants like this large pencil cactus. You should really see the fall colors we get from our fast growing grape vines!
