Along the front of D&M Hall are three plants showing off some great attributes this late in our fall season. Just south of the entrance on Main St is a beautiful ‘Erie’ Viburnum {V. dilatatum ‘Erie’} with lustrous fall colors in many shades ranging from red to deep mahogany at the rear of the plant. Just to its left are several ‘Brilliant’ Red Chokeberries {Aronia arbutifolia ‘Brilliantissima’} that have bright red foliage as well as bright red fruit clusters. The leaves will drop soon but the fruit will hang into early winter. To the north of the Main Street entrance are several large Common Witchhazels {Hamamelis virginiana} in full bloom with yellow flowers that have strap like petals. The foliage is also an attractive shade of yellow and as the leaves drop the flowers become more pronounced. The flowers usually last into the beginning of December.
