Rosemoor explodes with Autumn colour

Posted by Rosemoor Garden on 29 Oct 2009 at 12:58 PM

Autumn is a very exciting time at Rosemoor as the garden explodes into colour!


Our wonderful autumnal days are just perfect for a relaxing stroll around the Garden. The garden sits in a wooded valley which is itself turning colour, and once inside the gate you can marvel at the rich colours on trees and shrubs, some of which seem almost unreal.


The majority of colour is on the leaves - Acer, Parrotia, Carya, Liquidamber, Hamamelis and Cornus are pictured here, but berries of white, pink, orange, red and yellow are speckled through bare branches, and the coloured stems and bark of trees and shrubs become more prominent.



The ground is strewn with carpets of leaves, perfect for children to kick into the wind, or for choosing the most beautifully coloured leaf to take home as a memento of a glorious day.


If you want to discover more about Autumn colour then come along for a walk and talk next Tuesday (3 November) Jon Webster, one of our horticulturists, will be guiding a walk at 11 o’clock to see the Autumn star plants that are grown for their foliage, fruit, bark and stem interest. We will also take the opportunity to discuss the placement and use of the plants within the garden.
