How is your color?
Fall 2014 Pictures
That color is stunning. Here in the valley color is still very subtle.
Some blooms keep showing up. Thank goodness for the Montauk daisy. Double tuberose finally bloomed. I can't get over how salvia black and blue is totally unfazed by the season. Even Mousme bigleave hydrangea is finally having its show. Someday, Ilex Opaca Dan Fenton will be a great tree, but now it's just cute.
Bill, the colors are awesome! Rosemary, my salvias do best in the cool fall ....I have 6 different ones blooming, including black & blue.....love the tuberose!
If you could give me a list that includes fall bloomers,Robin, I'll start salvia seeds this winter. The usual suspects like Mainicht are long gone in my garden.
Those are so cute, Jan! My granddaughters are the same age.....I like to keep them occupied with crafts rather than electronics! Rosemary, I wish I could give you the names of my salvias that are blooming so nicely now, but I don't have any tags.....I did buy them all from Edgewater Farm in Plainfield, NH.....the farm belongs to the daughter of a friend of my late husband.....there are over 20 greenhouses, & some wonderful speacialty plants.....
thanks. The idea has taken hold anyway, so I'm alert to new salvias.
took a bunch of JM fall color pictures follow the link
I think this has been the best color year for you.....love them all, but the reds are outstanding.....
it has been a good year - and there are still some yet to turn - working from home today and the bloodgood out front is even redder than the pictures I took two days ago.
Beautiful on both threads, Bill! Its the combination of the reds and orange tones that I find especially pleasing. Color on my newest acer is only just now beginning to show, so I'm sure it can't all be over yetl.
My no-name JM is yellow....the other 2 I have don't turn fall colors, but stay purple until the leaves fall......
