What's in bloom at the Toronto Botanical Garden

>October 13-20

In the Knot Garden you will find:
Juniperus procumbens ‘Nana’ (Creeping Juniper). It is one of the finest groundcover junipers, in this photo touched by an early Autumn frost

On the North Side of the Kitchen Fence:

Cercidiphyllum japonicum (Katsura Tree). A large forest tree native to Japan, Zone 4, outstanding Autumn display of yellow to apricot fall colour

In the Show Garden:
Callicarpa dichotoma ‘Issai’ (Purple Beautyberry). Delicate pink flowers in summer are followed by beautiful purple berries in fall. A difficult combination to beat!

Euonymus alatus ‘Compactus’ (Burning Bush) Spiral Mound; a dense, compact variety great for small gardens

In the Arrival Courtyard:

Miscanthus sinensis var. purpurascens (Flame Grass). Silver flowers sit atop foliage which has changed to brilliant orange-red for fall. It will remain standing through winter.
