Dwarf Fothergilla (Fothergilla gardenii) is reveling in the season along with, Cutleaf Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum var. dissectum), Little Zebra Miscanthus grass (Miscanthus sinensis 'Little Zebra'), and Fountain Grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides).
The evergreens in the background provide contrast and structure to the composition. The larger Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum) that peeks in at the top right corner of the photo contributes an overhead canopy to the setting.
