The paperbark maple tree has just started to turn color. But most of the other trees in the garden are losing their last leaves. I stood inside the branches of a couple of trees to capture the color that still remains: Cercidiphyllum japonicum pendula (Weeping Katsura) with the rusty needles of a Metasequoia glyptostroboides (Dawn Redwood) in the background.
The last leaves of the Ginkgo biloba.
Japanese forest grass (Hakonechloa aurea)
Heuchera 'Champagne.' I ordered this Heuchera from Avant Gardens in MA not long ago. I decided to put it in place of some small Hostas that die back too soon in the fall. Looking at how these leaves echo the Pegmatite stripe in the granite rock and the pebble mulch convinces me that I did the right thing.
Heuchera villosa 'Lava Lamp' offer "fall color" year round.
Be sure to visit Pam Penick at Digging who hosts this marvelous monthly meme. So nice to have a moment devoted to foliage instead of flowers.
