In the front of D&M there are several multi stem ‘Brilliant’ Red Chokeberry {Aronia arbutifolia ‘Brilliantissima’} shrubs in full bloom with clusters of small white flowers with bright red anthers.  This will be followed by glossy green foliage and fabulous red fall foliage.  The flowers yield very showy clusters of red fruit that will remain effective into early winter.  A wonderful multi season shrub that will form a large suckering colony if allowed.  On the east side of Speare Hall is a large Lantanaphyllum Viburnum {V. x rhytidophyllum} with clusters of cream colored flowers above its rather coarse semi-evergreen foliage.  Just behind the Shuttle stop on Highland St. is a group of Koreanspice Viburnums {V. carlesi} that have very fragrant white snowball shaped flower clusters.  In the large garden at the north end of the Silver Center are some Northern Hi-Lights Azaleas {Rhododendron x ‘Northern Hi-Lights’} coming into bloom with white and yellow flowers.  We also have ‘Rosy Lights’ with deep pink flowers coming into bloom in the same bed.
