August

August 4, 2011

Late summer blooming ornamentals provide plenty of reasons to visit Mount Auburn, though perhaps the best reason to visit the Cemetery in August is to seek shade beheath the Cemetery’s dense canopy of shade trees.  Maples and oaks are among our shade trees providing a welcome retreat from the hot summer sun. 

 Here are some of Mount Auburn’s plants with August’s Horticultural Highlights:

Summersweet Clethra
Grasses
Goldenrain Tree
Harlequin Glorybower
Seven Son Flower Tree
