Old Acer Glade at Westonbirt Arboretum


"As Autumn approaches many deciduous plants change the colour of their leaves prior to falling. The colour tends to vary from one plant to another due to the chemicals and pigments within each leaf. The lecture covers the principles involved, how gardeners can encourage leaf colour, and where to place the plants in the garden. There is also a pictorial list of many well known and some lesser known plants."
