On the west side of the Hogan House {Health Services} on Merrill Street is our oldest Japanese Tree Lilac {Syringa reticulata} with large panicles of cream colored flowers. T his is considered the most trouble free of all Lilacs and is an excellent choice for a small tree.  In front of the Russell House by Highland St. are beds of ‘Goldflame’ Spiraea {S. x bumalda ‘Goldflame’} that have greenish-yellow foliage and many flower clusters of pink flowers.  When the new growth emerges in the spring the colors are a brilliant combination of orange and red.  In front of Prospect Hall is a large mass of ‘Henry’s Garnet’ Sweetspire {Itea virginica ‘Henry’s Garnet} that has small white flower spikes emerging.  This spreading shrub is at its best in the fall, having excellent deep red fall foliage that lasts well into November.
