Late November colors

Several plants keep their colorful leaves or berries until late autumn. The plants below have been photographed this morning. Most of them are easy and cheap to find.

Berberis koreana:

With a Molinia 'Transparent' in the foreground.

Berberis thunbergii 'Bagatell':

Berberis thunbergii 'Golden Ring':

Berberis thunbergii 'Aurea':

Berberis thunbergii 'Erecta':

Berberis x mentorensis:

Callicarpa bodinieri 'Profusion':

Attention, it only produces these beautiful berries if you plant at least two ones against each other.

Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple':

In the foreground a Berberis thunbergii 'Atropurpurea Nana'.

Cotoneaster 'Skogholm':

Euonymus alatus 'Compactus' and Bergenia:

Euonymus europaeus:

Geranium sanguineum 'Striatum':

Hydrangea quercifolia:

Miscanthus (unfortunately I do not know the name of this species):

Miscanthus 'Adagio - Euonymus hamiltonianus 'Indian Summer':

Miscanthus 'Gracillimus':

Molinia 'Karl Foerster':

Behind it, on the trunk of the grubbed poplar tree there is oyster mushroom growing to our great pleasure.

Rosa 'Ballerina':
