Euphorbia tirucalli 'Fire Sticks' in front of the Administration building

We've had a funny fall: no 70 degree days to speak of or ever high 60's. We've jumped from high 80's and 90's pretty much to 50's. Still, though it's been cold we haven't had any freezes. It's worked for this wicked selection of the Pencil Tree, which really needs cool weather to produce this kind of color. Summer's heat tempers the color to yellow or maybe orangish yellow, but the cool temperatures of autumn really bring the fire.
