Celebrating a Favourite Mum – FineGardening

My title is Maria Clemente, and I reside in northern New Jersey. Working within the backyard design trade for over 20 years has impressed me to create a number of backyard areas round my very own property. Whereas I attempt to design gardens that show magnificence in each season, I’m all the time shocked at how the autumn backyard appears to be my favourite.

Since I heard Danielle and Carol speaking in regards to the pink Sheffield mum (Chrysanthemum ‘Hillside Sheffield Pink’, Zones 4–9) on a current episode of Let’s Argue About Vegetation (love the brand new podcast format by the way in which!), I felt a have to share the images of my autumn backyard, as that specific mum is certainly one of my favourite vegetation!

Take a look at the podcast episode that options Maria’s favourite mum: Episode 148: Want Checklist Vegetation

‘Hillside Sheffield Pink’ mum takes heart stage within the fall backyard. Behind it’s the tall Aster tataricus ‘Jindai’ (Zones 3–9) with purple flowers and a oakleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia ‘Ruby Slippers’, Zones 5–9) with lovely fall coloration.

Right here’s one other view of the identical planting, seen via a sprig of Calamagrostis × acutiflora ‘Karl Foerster’ (Zones 5–9). The smooth pink of the mums is such an ideal distinction to the brown and tan colours that dominate within the fall.

Brown seed heads from Allium ‘Millenium’ (Zones 4–8) within the foreground and a Japanese maple (Acer palmatum, Zones 5–9) within the background set off the mum flowers completely.

A more in-depth have a look at the oakleaf hydrangea reveals leaves which can be simply starting to shift into their heat autumn colours.
