Along the north side of the HUB Snackbar are four Korean Stewartia {S. koreana} coming into bloom with three inch white flowers opening to reveal yellow stamens.  The flowering will last up to four weeks depending on how warm it is.  The trunks are developing very handsome mottled bark with shades of white, gray and brown.  The summer foliage is dark green and the fall foliage is outstanding with shades of orange and red.  Truly a four season ornamental.  In front of the Russell House on Highland St. are several beds of ‘Anthony Waterer’ Spiraea {S. x bumalda ‘Anthony Waterer’} with carmine-pink flat topped flower clusters that will last several weeks.  The foliage will turn an attractive purplish red before dropping in October to reveal a very twiggy habit.
