On the common between the HUB and Speare Hall are several ‘Madonna’ Crabapples {Malus ‘Madonna’} with double white fragrant flowers.  This variety has among the longest lasting Crabapple flowers, partially because the flowers are double rather than single.  Hopefully these flowers will last until graduation.  On the west side of Mary Lyons Hall is a group of Dwarf Fothergilla {F. gardenii} with white fragrant flowers that look like small bottlebrushes.  This fine shrub has among the best multi-colored fall foliage of any plant on campus.  In the middle of the bed below the stone wall on the east side of Belknap Hall is a Carolina Silverbell {Halesia carolina} with small white bell shaped flowers hanging below and all along each branch.  This small tree was planted in 1978 and died to the ground each winter until about ten years ago.  It now appears to be able to withstand our milder winters.  Behind the Shuttle stop on Highland St. is a group of Myrtle-leaf Rhododendron {R. myrtifolium} covered with bright pink flowers above small evergreen leaves.  This shrub’s flowering has been improving each year for the last several.
