This month's blog focus on deciduous conifers not-withstanding (October 2019 in the Garden | UBC Botanical Garden), there is still colour around the garden, both flowers and fruits. The entrance plaza, for instance, is featuring Hot red right now, three with names beginning with "H". Hesperantha coccinea is still very showy. This is the third month I've posted it, but I see back in 2011 that I even posted it in December. What a hard worker! Next to it is a plant I would have called Sedum 'Autumn Joy', but that has been renamed to Hylotelephium spectabile Brilliant Group. I felt pretty brilliant myself finding that name, not that I'm claiming there isn't a label in there somewhere. It's no wonder with a name like that that the shops are still selling it as Sedum. Across the plaza, it's displayed with the Hesperantha. The mix of colours on the Hydrangea macrophylla 'Hobella' caught my eye. Back to hot, here is Euphorbia griffithii 'Fireglow'.
