2017 – CHW
It is amazing how a blue hydrangea can turn and fade into such extraordinary dark colour. Mainly dark red but with some greens. Three blue flowers still remain at the top of the bush.
Off to check autumn colour on the main styrax species planting which proved to be a dead loss as most are still entirely green today.Styrax formosanus var formosanus is just turning yellow and the seeds are now ripe and starting to fall.

Erica hybrida and Erica codonodes are opening. C sasanqua is fair. Have picked a good deal of rhodo and azalea seed but some is not ripe yet such as Mrs J.C. Williams and Azalea viscosum, just the worst weeks for rhodo flowers.
