Well, at the end of September, autumn colours are starting to replace the formerly green leaves but, of course, many flowers are still soldiering on.
This Crytomeria jap. “Barabit’s Gold”, pictured below, will become a feature of the West Garden, I hope. It has replaced the Acacia baileyana purpurea, which Storm Ophelia unceremoniously disposed of. A bit sad at the demise of the acacia but having a windswept garden, I was, perhaps, pushing the boat out too far.
But I still can’t resist pushing the boat out again, can I? I’ve installed this Schefflera macrophylla this month and am hoping that the coming winter won’t be too severe so that it can survive.
