As summer is coming to a close, the grasses are starting to stand out. This is a particular showy grass with seed spikes that look like eyelashes.

Hicks Yew
Hicks Yew     Taxus x media 'Hicksii'

Unlike its fellow conifers who bear seeds in a cone, this conifer encases its seed in a red, fleshy, berry-like structure known as an aril, which has a small opening. Each aril has one seed inside.

Only a couple more days left of summer, come watch the Garden transition into fall! Don't forget to stop and smell the roses!
