Autumn Ornamentals Walk

Leslie-4-th

Henry and Robert Tubbs enjoyed the beauty of the Willowwood Landscape year round and Winter was no exception. In fact, a number of plants in the collection are particularly ornamental during the late Autumn and Winter months. Some are evergreen, some deciduous but many have interesting fruit, bark or branching habit.

Start your tour opposite the entrance to the ‘Stone Barn' and continue to the left.
