Walking in a Nearly Winter Wonderland

Submitted November 21, 2014 at 9:41 AM

Winter has one foot in the door and is going to be settled in soon! This is a great time to peruse the late fall performers and the evergreens that will soon take center stage.

Pink Diamond Hydrangea    Hydrangea paniculata 'Interhydia'

White summer blooms mature to a rich pink-purple that compliments the ruddy hues of fall.

Wild Spice Rose   Rosa rugosa 'JACruwhi'

An abundance of plump, rosy-red hips dot the still-green foliage of this shrub rose.

A rainbow of fall colors reward visitors to the Water Pavilion..

Coral Bells   Heuchera  'Amber Waves'

A delightful palette of jewel toned leaves create eye catching mounds of late fall interest.

Japanese Barberry   Berberis thunbergii   var. atropurpurea

This drought tolerant shrub alights in fall with fiery-red fruits and leaves that are stunning into the winter.

Windflower   Anemone x hybrida 'Pamina'

Fluffy seed heads open in a tight clump resembling a heart or strawberry and then burst open to release their seeds to the winter winds.

Golden Ghost Japanese Red Pine   Pinus densiflora 'Golden Ghost'

The striking sprays of yellow and green variegated needles on this evergreen create a year round focal point that is especially stunning in the winter.

Gowdy Oriental Spruce   Picea orientallis 'Gowdy'

This elegant spruce is a gorgeous choice with attractive form, needles and cones.

Whether you get here on a sunny day to enjoy the last of the fall color, or after snow has flocked the boughs, this is a lovely time of year to visit the garden. A cornucopia of color awaits you!
