In addition to the good progress with the construction at new primary Krämeracker School in Uster, the gardeners have also been able to start the plantings. The result will be varied vegetation with native and non-native plants.
The plantings will show the changing seasons with budding, flowering, fall foliage, and the winter garden interest of standing inflorescences. In spring, the ornamental apples (Malus varieties) will bloom and in the meadow the first meadow species. The striking bloom of the tamarisks heralds the start of summer. Summer brings the blossoming of the currants, bayberries, wild roses and tall herbaceous flowering plants. In the autumn, the oak leaves turn bright red and the hornbeams and poplars yellow. The hazelnuts ripen, red rose hips cover the wild roses, and the ornamental apples display their small fruits. The fruits remain on the shrubs into wintertime and provide food for the birds. The dry inflorescences of the tall herbaceous flowering plants are showy in the winter landscape until snow and storms weigh them down. The evergreen foliage of pines and Elaeagnus provide a green undertone even in winter. The trunks of the poplars and the pines with their lovely bark are shown to their best advantage.
