Autumn Sun Shows off Acers Colours

Oct 23, 2013

A sunny Wednesday is showing up good colour on various acers throughout our arboretum and stock beds

Yes at last we have a brighter day to let us see some of the developing autumn colours at Thornhayes Nursery. We have always carried a good range of maples, and some of the stem/leaf combinations in the autumn are a sight not to be missed. Acer tegmentosum 'White Tigress' is one of our favourites. For something almost quite gaudy but suitable for that spot that really needs a splash of colour try Acer x conspicum 'Phoenix'. For some subtle autumn colours to lighten an area we would suggest Acer negundo 'White Lightening', which is vigorous and pollards well.
