Leaf peeping, Beverly Hills-style
February 14, 2011
If you think of fall color as a strictly New England phenomenon, you haven’t visited the county’s Virginia Robinson Gardens in Beverly Hills. These photos, with radiant persimmon trees providing much of the autumnal mood, showcase some of what can be found in the Italian Terrace section of the garden as the weather gets cooler. Garden superintendent Tim Lindsay, who took the photos, notes that all the plants are drought-tolerant. “I try to capture it every year,” he said. “It just seems to get better.” Visitors require reservations for the garden’s guided tours, which are offered Tuesday through Friday. Admission prices and other information is here.
