Royal Pavilion Garden Plant of the Month and A Moment of Wellbeing, Autumn 2019: Rhus and Robbins

As you are walking from the Museum to the Pavilion, look out for the beautiful autumn colours of Rhus Typhina (Stag’s horn sumach).

Situated on the edge of the King’s Lawn, it is a deciduous spreading suckering open shrub or tree with a height of 5m.

The leaves become brilliant orange red in autumn, accompanying clusters of spherical deep red fruits on female plants. (Click on the image for the full sized gallery)

 

Talking of red, you will find many robins in the garden this time of the year. With their distinctive red breast, they are a playful little bird and great company, especially if you are working the soil to expose worms.
