I can’t deny it any longer, the garden certainly has a mellow, yellow cast to the foliage. Just a couple of weeks ago, everything was still green in all its shades, but now it is looking like autumn is upon us. The sunlight is different, softer, lower in the sky, so not peeping over the huge trees in the woodland any more. I’ll have to wait until next month when the leaves are falling, before I see the sun coming through the bare branches of the trees once more.
Now called Pleioblastus viridistriatus, carries on the yellow theme, but this is ok as it should be yellow.
This hardy Fuchsia has yellow leaves for most of the year.
This area gets brightened up with pots of bulbs in the spring and summer, I will have to find some for autumn, but even so, I think it still has interest from the contrasting foliage.
The colours are starting to change.
This one is in a pot, grown from a hardwood cutting.
My new Acer, bought in the summer, is still growing and putting out new leaves, so these aren’t autumn tints, but the colourful new growth.
These leaves were green with white and pink splashes through the summer.
The silver birch by the back door is slowly turning yellow.
This Polypodium in the woodland is looking quite spring like, unlike most of the other ferns it is looking very fresh with its green fronds.
The fern, Adiantum venustum, is lending its foliage to Cyclamen hederifolium, which pops up between the fern fronds
I really like this one, it looks good for most of the year.
The Zantedeschia in the bog garden is still looking good, but I think the leaves will soon be going yellow before they fall.
Still contrasting with each other are Athyrium niponicum Pictum and a Rogersia.
This is just the plain ordinary Pulmonaria, but after being cut down for the summer, I am rewarded with fresh new leaves.
I think I ought to move this Pulmonaria as it is in danger of being chocked by a spreading Campanula.
Sometimes a thug, but not where I’ve planted it!
This is the end of my offering for Foliage Day, thanks must go to Christina at My Hesperides Garden for hosting this meme each month, please pay her a visit to see other foliage from round the world.
