LA County Starts To Burn

California Wild Grape, LA County Arboretum (10/20/12) Frank McDonough

The LA County Arboretum with its spectacular variety of trees has begun reporting precocious color among the Chinese pistache, California wild grapes, and Nyssa sylvatica.  Color spotter (and resident botanist) Frank McDonough reports, ” Things are starting to look up here at the L.A. County Arboretum & Botanic Garden.”  We look forward to Frank’s photos and reports.  If you’re from Southern California and would like to contribute, click on “Comment” below or post on our Facebook page (click “f” at upper left).
