My 30 year old Katsura (Cercidiphyllum Japonicum). Nice to have the yellow orange leaves, however short lived with the rain.
So beautiful! Does it smell lovely too?
Here is our ~10 year old katsura. We prune it pretty aggressively to keep its size in balance with a small yard. It’s also gorgeous in early spring.
Beautiful, does it have a scent in the fall when the leaves turn?
Very slight…thanks for asking, got me to pause and think about autumn smells.
These are beautiful…are they a special kind of cyclamen that naturalizes? Or are they just the regular indoor plant that can be bought as a houseplant? Just love them!
I forgot to clean up some seed stalks from the hostas around my pond, noticed the Juncos making quite a meal of them. Next year I will leave them all. Good organic food for the winter months.
I too noticed that the juncos and pine siskins are eating the seeds from the Bluebeard and Astilbe - both of which I neglected to prune back. Now that I know that the birds like to eat them, I’ll leave them longer.
I, too, didn’t know that there was a cyclamen that would grow outdoors here.
The cyclamen are for outdoors, the houseplant ones will not survive the winters. I believe I got them from Art Knapps, bought a few varieties that bloom at different times of the year and they are spreading naturally.
