Berry Beautiful

The Autumn season is certainly my favourite season, as I love the changes that the season brings. I have always been drawn to berried plants, as they provide colour during the gloomy Winter, as well as food for the birds. The Autumn hues in the foliage colours are also particularly attractive and certainly brings a whole new dimension to the garden in the Autumn. As the season ends, the last of the leaves fall to the ground in almost a surrender to the colder and dormant period.
A few of my favourite plants that form the basis of the Autumn/Winter colour in the form of berries, are:

Callicarpa

Callicarpa bodinieri

Hypericum

Hypericum inodorum

Nandina

Nandina domestica

Gaultheria

Gaultheria procumbens

Pyracantha

Pyracantha

Skimma

Skimmia japonica

Skimmia

Skimmia ‘Pabella’

Viburnum

Viburnum tinus
