A Patchwork Quilt

Colour in the garden is not just a function of flowers. Throughout the prime season, select foliage can add yellow, red, plum and purple tones. Come autumn, many of the greens will begin to shift colour and their warm and fiery tones can lengthen the period our gardens remain attractive. Here is a collection of scans of shrub leaves from our garden, artlessly arranged:

Pictures show leaves (from left to right, top to bottom): Ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius), Korean Lilac (Syringa meyeri)x2, Cotoneaster lucida, Amur maple (Acer ginnala), Winged Euonymous (Euonymous alata), Nannyberry (Viburnum lentago), P. opulifolius, A.ginnala, S.meyeri, Russian Mountain Ash (Sorbus aucuparia ‘Rossica’), P. opulifolius.
