Couple of Fall Pix

tsugajunkie z5 SE WINovember 1, 2011

Not many threads with Fall colors, so here are just a couple from my yard this year.

The first is hit or miss from year to year. This year was pretty good for a plant under the canopy of a Black Walnut and on the north side of it to boot.

Corylus americana

Some leaf close-ups

Viburnum plicatum var. tomentosum

Amelanchier x grandiflora

...and from another angle

Viburnum cassinoides

...a bit closer

Stewartia pseudocamellia

Feel free to add yours.

Glad to see that your posting some pics, always intrigued as to what you have.

Has your Stewartia pseudocamellia experienced any dieback?

I'd post mine but I just posted them all in ark's post.

Very pretty, thanks tj. I'd love to be able to add some pics but we don't have much Fall color going on down here (lotta crispy leaves and dying tress from the drought, though.)

No dieback yet on the Stewartia (planted 5 years ago) and it has seen around -20F (-29C). The first one I tried was cut in half by fur rats (rabbits) before it was a month old.

Glad you liked the pix, ghostly. It was a brutal year for you folks all over Texas.

Thanks for sharing! We certainly do not see those species with two exceptions in the local nurseries. I wouldn't have seen fall pics of those without this topic =)

Great color and such intricate coloring on the viburnam plicatum...so glad you posted the close-up.

I got a few yesterday before the wind and rain beat everything up.
'White Tigress' looking stellar in yellow.

Stewartia from above....

....and below. Fothergilla major to the right

Heptacodium doesn't color except for the flower remnants

Acer pseudosiebolidanum--great hardy maple, best fall color

Same goes for Acer griseum--late to color, but tough leaves hang in there through a lot of freezes.

Cotinus obovatus 'Tulsa Lady' will be a large stunning woman someday.

Acer robustum

One of those Cornus hybrids that I can't remember the name of

Enkianthus

Aconitum

The three seasons of V. plicatum tomentosum 'Shasta'

One word...stunning! I just love how the fall colors of deciduous trees play off the conifers.

Kevin, I have two Heptacodium miconioides. The larger one in the ground is showing no Fall color at all...so far.

The one in a container turned a yellowish red. See below.

I have a few Enkianthus. The more sun, the more red.


I like the semi-open look.

Mike I had my Heptacodium miconioides for several years and it would only turn an ugly yellow. Same goes for the mature specimens at the Chicago botanic gardens.

Perhaps that is a fluke with it being in the container? If you have it in the ground next year and it gets that fall color again you have something special.

Thats a nice speciman by the way...nice and bushy with plenty of branching at the crown.
