(4) Autumn Rebirth

A glorious season, fall. Yes, the world is getting ready for a long winter’s nap, but the garden comes back to life after late-summer doldrums. Plants sprout new growth and seed pods burst. Fall bloomers– sedum and chrysanthemums–and grasses come into their own.

Yellow sulphur butterflies swarm around pineapple sage. Miscanthus grass dances with ilex ‘Sparkleberry.’ ‘Chansonette’ Camellias bloom on a backdrop of fall color. Fringe tree and mulberry turn golden yellow, sweet gum bright orange. Crabapples ripen to a luscious red that attracts mockingbirds and cedar waxwings, nandina and cranberry viburnum berries glow in late afternoon sunlight.
