Peak Color in the Native Flora Garden

On such a beautiful day, why not stop by to enjoy the fall color at Brooklyn Botanic Garden? Right now the Native Flora Garden is at the apex of its autumnal display. The maples are just starting to turn in the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, and at the start of Cherry Walk, the air is perfumed with the delicious caramel scent of Cercidiphyllum japonicum, or katsura tree. Even the Garden’s deciduous bonsai are showing their colors—in miniature.

Enjoy this sample of the current display, and share your own images on BBG’s online visitor photo pool.

Mark Fisher is director of Horticulture at Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
