October is a colorful time of year at Gibbs Gardens. Early in the month hundreds of roses as well as exotic and hardy waterlilies provide color throughout the Gardens. As the month continues, trees and shrubs begin to display their fall finery in brilliant shades of red, orange and yellow. On warm days the sweet scent of tea olive flowers perfumes the air.
When visitors enter the Gardens, the first flowers they see when they cross the Flower Bridge are masses of perennials and annuals. Window boxes overflow with chartreuse sweet potato vine, Angelonia, begonias, Mandevilla, pentas and more. The gardens bordering the Manor House are lush with combinations; highlights include Russian Sage, coleus, lamb’s ear, cannas, Black-eyed Susans and more.
Be sure to visit the Meadow too, where sumacs, goldenrod and asters are flowering in shades of red, orange, yellow, white and purple.
