In front of the Russell House are two beds of ‘Brouer’s Beauty’ Pieris {P.x ‘Brouwer’s Beauty’} whose exposed flower buds have turned a dark red. These buds will open in late April and remain very attractive throughout our winter. I consider this to be our most ornamental shrub for the late fall and winter seasons.

This is one of the newer selections from the National Arboretum that performs very well here. Along the stone wall on the east side of Belknap Hall is a Dwarf Fothergilla {F.gardenii} that has outstanding reddish orange foliage, just beautiful.
