Rutgers Display Gardens


10/29/61

Weather overcast with showers. Eighteen members gathered at 10:30 a.m. for a tour of the holly and other berried plantings and an opportunity to watch the birds. Ilex verticillata and Ilex laevigata and Ilex glabra were showing bright color. The growing season has been excellent, but the autumn has been mild with ample moisture. Several cultivated plants were observed in flower:

Ilex aquifolium
Rhododendron arbutifolium
R mucronatum
Osmanthus ilicifolius
Elaeagnus pungens reflexas
Hamamelis virginiana
