Another gorgeous early fall day at the Arboretum. The Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum ‘Bonfire’) in front of the Mansion is in full autumn regalia showing off its apricot colored leaves. The Seven Sons Tree (Heptacodium miconioides) has dropped its white corollas and developed deep red fruiting calyces covering the tree, which is visible to the left as you drive past the Haggerty Education Center. Bees were all over the Mexican Bush Sage (Salvia leucantha) in the bed above the stone wall on the way into the Haggerty.
Rain is in the forecast, so take advantage of the next couple of sunny days and schedule a visit to the Arboretum!
