The Autumn Garden

As the days shorten and autumn sets in a restfulness takes over the garden. Glowing berries such as Callicarper or Pyracanthus introduce brightness, trees or shrubs with spectacular autumn leaves, such as Acers and Virginia creaper make the garden as handsome as ever, and late flowering perennials such as Michaelmas daisies and Rudbeckia inject colour until the arrival of the first frosts.
