In the beds by the Roundabout on Main St are our first Dwarf Korean Lilacs {Syringa meyeri ‘Palibin’} to bloom with fragrant pink flower spikes.  This fine shrub stays at a reasonable size of less than six feet, blooms from an early age and has very attractive mahogany colored fall foliage.  We have several beds along Highland St. that will be in bloom later this week.  In the bed above the entrance to the Bagley House is a deciduous Carolina Allspice {Calycanthus floridus} in bloom with fragrant dark reddish brown flowers that appear to be dried.  It is most fragrant in the evening.
