Quirky themes for gardens have always been my specialty, as well as color in the garden. I love semi-monochromatic gardens. So when I found that I was acquiring quite a few plants with foliage in hues of mahogany, purple, russet, and burgundy, I decided to give them their own garden.
Following are pictures from the beginning of the Mahogany Garden to the present.
New foliage of Acer 'Esk Sunset' (often erroneously called Eskimo Sunset, but was named after Esk Nursery)
Jon got creative with the chainsaw to avoid cutting down the stump of a fir tree.
Chocolate Cosmos with Canna 'Durban'
Pacific Coast Iris 'Buff Beauty'
Sumac 'Tiger Eyes' lends a nice contrast.
