In the bed to the right of the main entrance to Boyd Hall is a group of Rhododendrons, white flowered Catawba Rhododendron {R. catawbiense alba} and the dward ‘Purple Gem’ Rhododendron {R. x ‘Purple Gem’} that are having a second season of flowering, though much lighter than their first.  At the southwest corner of Ellen Reed Hall is a beautiful ‘Erie’ Viburnum with a great display of red fruit.  As we progress into fall the leaves will turn to shades of red and orange and finally a beautiful mahogany brown.  In front of Prospect Hall along the curb are several ‘Red Sprite’ Winterberries {Ilex verticillata ‘Red Sprite’} whose fruit is just beginning to color red.
