Fall In Love With Fall 2016 During Hamptons Foliage Garden Walk

Nicole Barylski

Bask in the beauty of autumn on the East End during a Foliage Garden Walk at LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton. On Saturday, November 5th, join Alex Feleppa, LongHouse Reserve's horticulturist and certified arborist, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to gain understanding about the foliage, fruit, and flowers that set such an unforgettable background at the LongHouse.

"There is a real science to understanding fall color, and it can be quite fascinating," shared Feleppa. "Factors such as temperature and amount of daylight mix with the how much water the tree has received, and that in turn affects how the sugars in the plant change and how showy or not the fall color is."

As tourgoers explore the scenic 16 acre East Hampton reserve and sculpture garden, Feleppa will point out subtle nuances that you may not have given a second glance and share interesting facts about seasonal trees and shrubs like coral bark maples to Japanese beautyberries. The inspiring observation of the garden is bound to rouse guests, who will leave with tips and ideas that will help enhance their own outdoor living space.

"In some cases, some of the yellows and oranges we see in the fall are actually in the leaves all year, they are just masked by the green chlorophyll," noted Feleppa. "But you do not need to be an expert in organic chemistry to get a basic understanding and greater appreciation of what is happening in nature this time of year."

Admission is $10, and free for LongHouse Reserve members.

LongHouse Reserve is located at 133 Hands Creek Road in East Hampton. For more information, call 631-329-3568 or visit www.longhouse.org.
