In the garden at the north end of the Silver Center on Main St is our Umbrella Magnolia {M. tripetala} that has very large white flowers beginning to open.  This tree has the largest leaves of any plant on campus, up to 24″ long, which gives it a tropical appearance once they are fully expanded.  The flowers are creamy white and up to 12″ in diameter, but they are borne rather high up in the tree and not that easy to see.  In the same garden are several ‘Rosy Lights’ Azaleas {Rhododendron x “Rosy Lights’} that have deep pink flowers.
