Autumnal colors in Augustcomments (2) November 29th, 2011 in blogs
Check out this warm-hued combo from Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boyleston, Massachusetts. The colors are pleasingly harmonious, but the mix of textures is exciting. While this photo was taken in August, it feels appropriate for November! Included are a spiky phormium (Phormium cv., Zones 8-11), what looks to be a 'Sedona' coleus (Solenostemon scutellarioides 'Sedona', Zone 11), a peachy flowering maple (Abutilon cv., Zones 8-11), and the rosy dangling flowers of a fuchsia (Fuchsia cv., Zones 9-11).
