October is here, a time of year that welcomes in familiar colors and decor in the Garden. There was such a positive response to the beautiful Mum display on the Floral Walk last year that we're doing it again, and I have to say, it looks incredible. But don't believe me, come see for yourself.

This beautiful display is just one of the unique designs.

Nannyberry Viburnum (Viburnum lentago)

A favorite of birds, this Viburnum produces beautiful blue berries and stunning fall foliage.

Cliffrose (Purshia mexicana)

This is an interesting sight. The late season rain storms have confused some spring-blooming plants into blooming again.

Crystal Lake Geranium (Geranium wallichianum 'Crystal Lake')

The dark purple veins make the soft pink petals really pop in these Courtyard flowers.
