Native shrubs fall color

Both these shrubs are native, but I've never seen them in the wild. That may have to do with their natural range being the southeast. They've been widely planted in the north, for obvious reasons. The first is oak-leaved hydrangia (Hydrangia quercifolia).

This dwarf fothergilla (Fothergilla gardenii) was planted at Mountain Lakes House, and has been left alone by the deer.
