Astilbe seed heads and Clematis orientalis seedheads inter mingled 20/10/11

Some of the earliest autumn leaf colour from Cornus sibirica ‘Alba’, before the leaves drop to reveal the deep red stems for winter interest. 20/10/11

One of our favourite signature plants which we grow masses of, Persicaria vaccinifolia. Great in pots/tubs as well. Flowers well into November, and then rusty covered leaves over winter until the new fresh green leaves form in late spring 20/10/11

Always reliable, longlasting autumn colour from Liquidambar styraciflua ‘Worplesden’ 28/10/11

The valley starts to wind down for autumn/winter…..28/10/11
