Look But Don’t Touch
75 – 100% – LA County Arboretum & Botanic Garden -Frank McDonough cautions to look but don’t touch the brilliant crimson Japanese fruit wax tree whose oils can cause an alergic reaction much like its cousin, poison oak. Still, it is lovely to look at.
Frank reports that the arboretum and garden are at 75% of peak, but for those who are chronically tardy, bright yellow ginkgo trees will be showing color (weather permitting) following Thanksgiving Day.
So, this is the week to head to the LA County Arboretum to see the gorgeous colors seen in these images and to sense autumn at its glorious finale.
