Warm autumn colours

October and red, orange, yellow and green foliage colours now dominate the garden as flowering becomes less prolific. (Hardy Geranium ‘Brookside’ and Sisyrinchium’s are still having a final burst of flower though!) The deep purple leaves on the right of the picture are from Hydrangea quercifolia, the oak-leaved hydrangea. It will lose it’s leaves soon and look dull all winter, but it’s autumn leaf colour and off-white flowers in the summer make it just-about worthy of a space my small garden! (note: it needs an acidic soil).
