Japanese GardenNovember 15, 2002

What a tremendous year for  fall color in  the Arboretum!  This week we are at the end of the peak for fall color, but some of the outstanding plants not to be missed are: Lindera salicifolia, Lindera angustifolia, Lindera glauca, and Nyssa sylvatica Dirr's Selection. There are also many flowering treasures to be found, including the blue flowers of Gentiana saponaria and  the Encore™ azaleas (R. Autumn Coral™ and R. Autumn Royalty™) in the Lath House.  The Finley-Nottingham Rose Garden continues to be full of lovely flowers, but this may be the last week for this show.  In the Annual Trials & Demonstration Area the winter annuals are rapidly growing and certainly worth a visit by all.
