Mid-October in New England is the time of colorful shrubs. The green leaves of summer respond to cool temperatures and short days. To the left, the burgundy hued foliage of the ‘Mariessi’ viburnums and the “just-starting-to turn” Oakleaf hydrangeas wear their fall colors while the pink ‘Knock Out’ shrub rose continues to bloom.

 

The foliage of the Fernleaf Japanese Maple sets the tone with the yellow turning fronds of ferns and green hostas and the wetland beyond. Garden design can offer 3 seasons of color and a great planting scheme for winter as well.
