What's in bloom at the Toronto Botanical Garden

>Nov 3 -10

>With the coming of autumn as the leaves begin to fall, the “good bones” or structure of the garden are shown at their best, much of which depends on the choice of trees and shrubs.

In the Show Garden you will find:
Ilex verticillata ‘Winter Red’ (Winterberry). Stunning bright red berries produced in profuse quantities hold well into winter

In the Show Garden:
Cotoneaster horizontalis var. perpusillus (Rock Cotoneaster). Bright scarlet berries over rounded dark leaves from late summer through fall; will withstand considerable drought once established.

In the Show Garden:
Spirea japonica ‘Little Princess’ (Japanese Spirea). Bright green leaves of summer change to red for fall; another pick that tends to hold its leaves late into the season.

In the Knot Garden:
Fagus sylvatica forma purpurea ‘Cuprea’ (Copper Beech). Paler leaves than the true Purple Beech, hence its name, and holds its leaves long into the fall and winter.

In the Entry Garden:
Cotinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’ (Smoke Tree). Dark red-purple foliage turns scarlet in autumn.
