Cotinus coggygria "Palace Purple"

There are few more vivid colours in the autumn border than Cotinus coggygria "Palace Purple", pictured here at Hardwick Hall yesterday. It's a relatively inexpensive shrub that I have had in my garden until I did a clear-out. "Regrets, I've had a few..." I certainly would not have removed it had it been at its very best and it may be due a renaissance.

And while I'm on about Hardwick, here's a little filler that looks rather good for the time of year -  simple, honest to goodness, nasturtiums. And they taste nice with salads.

Not to be outdone, there are alternative fillers and very seasonal at this time of year.

Finally, a colour to die for.
