Monday 41 | A Year of Mondays

I have a new contender for the last blast of color for the year.  One of the new plants I added to the garden this year was a Cotinus coggygria ‘Golden Spirit’.  I used the one I planted for a client a few weeks ago as a post about color inspiration, but mine was never that subtle.  It rivals the Fothergilla gardenii in another part of the garden for fall drama.  I am delighted that after 41 weeks there’s still something wonderful in this small garden space…

  1. Hi susan,

    I love your colorful Autumn share. The leaves are gone off of my Golden Spirit in zone 5b. Thank you for the memory.

    Happy Thanksgiving if I don’t see you at #gardenchat. I love your work Susan – amazing talent!

    I won’t be able to be there tonight. Going to see Alberto Alessi at the Cooper Hewitt. Thanks for visiting!–s

  3. Lovely color, lovely structure.

  4. They just hate it down south. I’ve planted my share over the years with little success. glad to see it is bringing you a color blast late season!
