Berries – Autumn’s Other Display

While walking through the garden, vibrant reds, purples and blues draw me toward an area I might otherwise overlook. For some shrubs the diminutive flowers it produced in the spring now give way to a show of glorious color.

The holly and beautyberry add delight to an otherwise monochromatic color scheme

while honeysuckle and juniper add to the smorgasbord of seeds and berries.

Shrub roses mature to become  rose hips

and Pulpits turn into fluorescent seed pods.

What colors do you see in your gardens during the Autumn season? Is there a shrub or plant you recommend to extend garden color?  ENJOY . .

  1. I love the caryopteris (sp?) for the dusty blue it provides. Wish I had more berry producing plants. Until I do….I will enjoy yours! Thanks Bonnie for the gorgeous pics.
