Lily, euonymous, acers ....if not too exposed. Some of the green varieties colour up magnificently in autumn. What about the Chinese sorbus.....can't recall the name at mo...? Brilliant autumn colours and tough. not too hot on trees though.
I know what you mean about the sumach tree. My neighbour's glows like an orange fireball, as does his other suckered shrub and......
Just returned with my dog from his walk on the Towans.....it's eerily magical out there. Ran up the steep bank....prob 400 metres...to top to see the sea, lighthouse and st Ives bay coast. my young sister's ashes are there so even in the dark its a solacing place fo be. Puffed now. Well, puffed when I got to,the top anyway
It's been dry, some sunshine, windy and warm. Got a collapsible bin full of cut down plant material and one border is now almost fully planted, tidied and considered. Managed to get another hellebore ....my own .pink seedling that is delightful and different.....in too. Should flower well in early spring.
Quite concerned about the winds forecast on Sunday night . Cornwall is supposed to get the full force of it around midnight. Just sense something a bit different coming!
