Slide show — Autumn

A clump of sedums seen through a veil of Eragrostis trichiodes.Persicaria amplexicaule 'Firetail' gives a good colour for a long period.Before the last of the leaves fall, the grasses come into their own.Apple 'Ida Red' is a good late eater.I like the coppery colours of purple beech with the fresh greeny yellow of mahonias; especially when seen against the autumnal sunlight.At this stage the spikes of Molinia caerulea ssp. arundinacea are still standing. Later they will be knocked down by wind and, possibly, snow.
