More Autumn Colour

Liquidamber styraciflua

Fothergilla major

Acer cercinatum
The Autumn is coming slowly and spectacularly.

Liquidamber styraciflua, sweet gum, from the Eastern US and introduced to the UK in 1884
is so dark that it photographs blue in the late afternoon light.

Fothergilla major, a slow growing shrub from the Alleghany Mountains is particularly vivid this year.

Acer circinatum one of the many Acers here at High Beeches.

The Garden is open from 11 am on Sunday 20th October and there is a Gift Fair in aid of Parkinsons UK
