In The Fall
My yellow ginkgo tree (Ginkgo biloba, Zone has the best autumn yellow in my garden—a bright and cheery glow that stands out from other faded plants. It’s drought hardy, tolerant of all soils and doesn’t mind air pollution.
Let’s hope for a thick blanket of snow over the garden this winter. A snow-covered garden is best for plants. Ice is better left for the rink or your drink.
Cornelian cherry blooms early with short-stalked umbels of yellow flowers breaking from bare wood. Cornelian cherry flowers have a honey scent.
Despite the warming trend, borderline hardy plants in my garden continue to suffer winter damage. Global warming hasn’t altered plant hardiness zones yet.
In the back garden, there’s another long needled pine, ‘Chalet’ Swiss stone pine, which is a slow-growing, compact tree with a dense conical form.
The fern-leaved beech is a tree of true elegance, with narrow glossy green leaves that turn burnished bronze in autumn and form the most ideal leaf mulch.
