Autumnal colours, roses and Rhododendron vireya and the beautiful Luculia are here there but leaves are beginning to Fall

Photos by Gay Klok in her Town and Country garden

during May and June 1999
 


 

The Autumn roses are very special with strong scent and a very special colour

Delicate and with strong perfume, this rose blends with the Autumn leaves
 
 
 


 

Evergreen Azaleas may bloom for many weeks during  late Fall and early Winter
 
 
 

It is the same with the early Sasanqua Camellias
 


 

A close up of this beautiful sasanqua Camellia
 
 
 


 

Roses are still in bloom give extra pleasure at the end of Autumn and the beginning of Winter
 
 


 

They will have to stop blooming soon as June is our pruning time.   I will have to fill the vases with the flowers!
 
 


 

This lovely rose is a scrambler and never seems to stop blooming
 


 

In the Town Garden, in the swimming pool surround, the vireya Rhododendrons are really coming into their own
 


 

The blooms have subtle sunset shades and will sometimes flower at any old time throughout the year
 


 

This is a different Rhododendron to the one in the first photo.   The flower is shaped slightly differently
 
 


 

This Rhododendron vireya has small rose-pink flowers
 
 


 

The Luculia flowers in the middle of Winter and is very early this year
 
 


 

The last of the Autumn trees, a Japanese Maple has such fiery coloured leaves, it will stand up to the showiest of flowers.   I see in this photo that the low branch on the right should be pruned as soon as the sap stops flowing
