As the trees on exhibit move past their peak fall color we replace them with trees that are just beginning to shine. Here are the new additions as well as a few from the first post that look better than they first did.

Red Maple, Acer rubrum var. Drummondii, Donated by Vaughn Banting, In training since 1974.
Cedar Elm, Ulmus crassifolia, Donated by Arch Hawkins, In training since 1981.
Ginkgo biloba, Donated by Masayuki Fujio, In training since 1896.
Japanese Maple, Donated by Ryutaro Azuma, In training since 1906.
Liquidambar, Donated by Vaughn Banting, In training since 1975. The photo doesn’t do the tree justice regarding its actual color. Its almost a neon red. When you see it in person the tree seems like it is glowing.
Golden Larch, Pseudolarix amabilis, Donated by Shu-ling Lui, In training since 1971.
Thanks for reading. I will be posting the final installment of this years fall exhibit next week. This coming weekend will be your last opportunity to see this special Fall Exhibit, so if you live in or near DC stop by the Museum and enjoy the trees before all the leaves are gone.
