It's Not Just Trees!

It's not just trees that turn colour.  In fact the brightest reds I have seen the past two weeks have all been shrubs.  Here's a selection.

Burning Bush, one of the brightest at this time of year.

Virginia Creeper, a very widespread wild vine hereabouts, sometimes used for urban landscaping, as almost disguising this fence.

Sumach, another of my favourites, varying from bright red to orange.

And the mystery plant, here completely hiding the fence over which it is draped.  A bit like a maple leaf, a bit like a Virginia Creeper leaf, a bit like an ivy.  And ideas?????

….So the verdict is in, this is Boston Ivy.  Thanks to Woody and Al, though why a vine native to Japan would be called 'Boston' Ivy, I don't know!

  1. The last one looks like Boston ivy, a vine native to Japan. Here it often grows on buildings.

  2. I was quite disappointed that my Virginia Creeper didn't turn red this year. It just turned brown and fell. :(

  3. That's what I like most of all about Autumn, the bright vibrant reds.

  4. I can identify a lot of them. Some are difficult. I even like the red poison ivy vines to look at where we live.

  7. I think Woody might be right about Boston Ivy. We have Boston Ivy growing on the side of our wooden shed and it looks a lot like your photo.

  9. I didn't know that is called burning bush, but it's appropriate. And your colors are all very bright and cheerful, getting ready to make the leap off the bushes. :-)
