October portraits of
Viburnum sargentiana 'Onondaga'
The autumn (2003) leaves of 'Onondaga' Highbush Cranberry
are maroon, as they were upon first emerging
early in the spring. This portrait shows it during its
first autumn in our garden, still a small but awfully attractive shrub.
How delightful is this unusual pattern which
every leaf retains for three or four weeks,
Each leaf displays a mottled-green arrow or
christmas-tree outlined in purple.
It doesn't recreate this pattern every year, but is
an extra thrill when it does.
At mid-October (2004), in dappled shade, 'Onondaga' reaches its
height of color. By early November all these leaves will have fallen,
though it is only about than ten feet away from the
'Wentworth' highbush cranberry that reaches its
maximum color a bit later in October & still has leaves in November.
Read more about this shrub on the main
Viburnum sargentiana 'Onondaga' Page.
