Fall color in the Pacific Northwestcomments (0) November 21st, 2011 in gallery
When designing my garden, I wanted to ensure I would have an abundance of fall color. When the sun came out the other day, I ran out with my camera to capture the foliage in this short-but-oh-so-sweet period between summer abundance and winter retreat.
I love Japanese maples and have found spots for many varieties. Fireglow, Katsura, Butterfly, Full Moon, Lion's Head, Red Dragon, Virdis and Coral Bark, Throw in a number of non-identified types that I foraged from under other trees (above) and I've created a strong base for fall color as well as summer bliss.
Nandina, leucothoe, and Goldflame Spirea extend that color further, making a great complement to the trees and providing much needed small bush structure.
