In front of the southeast corner of Prospect Hall is a Siebold Viburnum {V. sieboldi} with a very heavy flower set just beginning to open.  This shrub is usually grown in a multi-stem habit but it lends itself very well to be trained as a single stem tree. It has bright green fragrant foliage and clusters of red fruit that turns black.  In the same bed is a Redvein Enkianthus {E.campanulatus} that was raised in the college nursery and has pendulous red bell shaped flowers.  It also has very attractive red fall foliage.  We have some very large Enkianthus in the garden on the north side of Memorial Hall.  Along the south side of High St. below Speare Hall are five ‘Winter Gold’ Crabapples {Malus ‘Winter Gold’} that are covered in white flowers.  This variety gets its name from the large numbers of yellow berries that are effective through fall and early winter.  In front of Mary Lyons Hall is a white flowering Cutleaf Crabapple {Malus toringoides} that has a much finer texture in leaf than other Crabapples because of it’s finely cut foliage.  Just south of the Rounds Hall Clock Tower is a ‘Brioti’ Horsechestnut {Aesculus x carnea ‘Brioti} that has very showy flower spikes of red flowers with yellow throats.
