Sycamore Trees – Santa Monica Mountains

The sycamores are falling dormant but have yet to lose their leaves along the creek bed that adjoins Peter Strauss Ranch in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. The silver trunks and golden leaves make for an excellent contrast.

Winter in the San Fernando Valley

Captured as I walked through the neighborhood. The liquidambar trees, along with some ginkgo are about the only Fall/Winter color we get, but they usually put on a good show.

In the natural world, flowers get all the attention and I have been guilty of perpetuating that bias here in my own blogs. That said, leaves are amazing, too, so in this series I will highlight the many forms of leaves available out there. — Douglas

From Wikipedia…

Coleus was a genus of flowering plants in the family Lamiaceae. In recent classifications, the genus is no longer recognized, and the formerly included species are instead placed in the genera Plectranthus and Solenostemon.[1][2] Because the type species, Coleus amboinicus (Plectranthus amboinicus) is now placed in Plectranthus, Coleus is regarded as a synonym of Plectranthus. The term “coleus” is often used as a common name for species formerly placed in the genus Coleus that are cultivated as ornamental plants, particularly Coleus blumei (Plectranthus scutellarioides), which is popular as a garden plant for its brightly colored foliage.
