Autumn colour at Uppark
Gardens reflect the changing seasons of nature. During the autumn, Uppark comes alive with autumnal colour within the formal gardens and in the dramatic surrounding countryside and woodlands.
Uppark is perched high on the South Downs, making it the perfect place for a peaceful escape. It commands wide views across the rolling Sussex hills – with glimpses of the Isle of Wight possible on clear days. The autumnal weather gives Uppark a peaceful atmosphere, as nature and wildlife adapt to the changing season.
The woodlands are perfect for an autumn stroll, observing the change in nature and spectacular viewpoints. The treescapes create beautiful canopies of green, yellow and red shades of colour. No leaf is like another, displaying mottled russets and dappled tones.
In the garden itself, the russet and gold leaves of our stand-out trees evolve towards the archetypal colours of autumn. In the Pleasure Grounds, our Silver Maple and Tulip trees add to the warm Uppark autumn palette, while in the Tea Garden the Japanese Angelica lends its autumn shades once flowering is over. The beautiful pink shades of Sedums bring a splash of colour to our garden borders.
