The arelia's berries are starting to mature. I wonder if the birds will eat them.

I tried to get a macro shot of this wasp. It was just too petite for the cell phone to focus on. #closeup #shadegarden #victorygarden #communitygarden #fenway #fenwayvictorygardens #urbangardening

I've seen a variety of small insects foraging on the Aralia cordata 'Sun King'. None of them appear to be causing damage. #closeup #macro #shadegarden #victorygarden #communitygarden #fenway #fenwayvictorygardens #urbangardening

I thought the flowers on Aralia cordata 'Sun King' were going to be boring. I was wrong. The white flowers & red stems contrast nicely against the foliage. Strobilanthes 'Persian Shield' still looks great also #victorygarden #communitygarden #shadegarden #fenway #boston #fenwayvictorygardens #urbangarden

Sun King in blossom. Not a flamboyant flower but I do like the structure & the red tint to stems. It's suppose to get (non-edible) berries next

Aralia cordata 'Sun King' with Strobilanthes 'Persian Shield' has been a great combination all summer. I'm going to use it again next year

Aralia cordata 'Sun King' (Sun King Spikenard) Has kept it's color and has doubled in size since planting it last month. It's supposed to get about 72" tall
