FALL OR AUTUMN FLOWERS, VIREYA RHODODENDRONS
 

Photos taken in the Town garden, Hobart Tasmania

by Gay Klok May 2000
 
 


 
 

Vireya Rhododendrons may bloom several times through the year
 
 
 


 
 

These are growing in a protected area around the swimming pool in our Town House garden
 
 


 
 

Close up of the above Vireya.   They will grow outside but do not flower so freely as with the protective walls of the swimming area
 
 


 
 

Yet another form, these looms are much smaller but a very pretty rosette
 
 


 
 

I have a few evergreen Azaleas growing in the same area and this is the third blooming.   I think this is called "Silver Anniversary" and if it is, I gave this to Kees on our 25th Wedding Anniversary.   After another 23 years, it is a rather large bush!
 
 


 
 

The white flowers are rather hard to get a good photo with the digital camera.   I like this Azalea, it has a yellow-green throat
 
 


 
 

We have gone outside the swimming pool surround now.   A variety of shrubs and trees, Euphorbia and Man ferns
 
 


 
 

An Acer and our 120+ English Oak tree
 
 


 
 

Another Acer with very cut leaves.   This is hanging over the little pond my daughter made for me many years ago.  She was found making a hole in the deepest shade so i grow a lot of ferns around the area.   The Autumn leaves give a lovely glowing light in the shade
