Hopefully the trend continues with new and even more impressive displays next year — I can’t get enough of them. I think the planners and designers are having more fun than the observers, if that is even possible.
A special thanks to the “keepers” of the gardens who had to overcome the heat and draught of this unusual year. It took great perseverance to keep these beautiful gardens in pristine condition — no small task.
Fall garden color is always a challenge and if you’ve ever wondered what that beautiful purple shrub in bloom this time of year is, it’s none other than caryopteris or better known as blue mist shrub — a late bloomer that will brighten the landscape with a luminous blue.
