What's in Bloom: November = Location



Near the Swan Pond

Fagus engleriana
(Engler beech)

Take refuge under the russet limbs of the Engler beech! It is a rare variety and one of our Great Trees.


Near Orange Balustrade

Cercidiphyllum japonicum
(Katsura-tree)

Considered by some to be the greatest tree at the Arboretum, the katsura has great fall color and emits a sweet aroma.

Near the Log Cabin

Metasequoia glyptostroboides
(Dawn redwood)

The Dawn redwoods are deciduous conifers that were thought to be extinct until their rediscovery in 1941!



Oak Allée

Ilex serrata
(Fine tooth holly)

This plant, native to Asia, provides a bright splash of color on the Oak Allée.


Long Fountain

Lindera salicifolia
(Willow-leaved spicebush)

The long fountain is brought to life, surrounded by the bright colors and spicy scent of this Laurel family shrub.


Out on a Limb

Acer palmatum
(Japanese maple)

Vibrant varieties of Japanese maple dot the Arboretum grounds with color this month!
