Often I find myself vaguely acquainted with a genus until I have an encounter that makes me want to find out more!
The idea that gardens are for spring and summer only is ridiculous. Autumn brings colour and excitement of its own, often through displays of fruits.
Autumn brings more subtle colours into the garden, but there’s still plenty to enjoy, like this remarkable tree…
A shrub/tree for late summer flowers, good bark and a decent rate of growth. What’s not to like?
Is it right to ignore a whole family just because they reproduce a certain way?
