In the garden on the north side of Prospect Hall is a Sourwood tree {Oxydendron arboreum} that has deep red fall foliage with cream colored pendulous seed panicles that make this tree almost as attractive now as it was in full bloom [ July 8 entry]. This is a true multi-season tree with many great attributes; it always deserves a spot in your garden. It is also called Lily of the Valley Tree and Sorrel Tree. There are also three Sourwood trees on the west side of the Silver Center. Just outside the west entrance to the HUB is an ‘Early Amethyst’ Purple Beautyberry with fruit that gives the plant its name. The fruit in the center of the plant colors up first and it is very much worth a look as you pass. Certainly one of the most attractive and unique plants on campus for colorful fruit.
