In front of the Eco House on the roundabout is a single stem Shadbush {Amelanchier canadensis} in bloom with white to pink flowers. Just behind this plant along the north side of the Silver Center is another group of the same plant but grown with a multi-stem habit. At the foot of the Hyde Hall ramp is a ‘Leonard Messel’ Magnolia with purple flowers that lighten to pink as they open. In the beds by the D&M quadrant of the roundabout are several ‘PJM’ Rhododendrons {R.x ‘PJM’} coming into bloom with bright lavender pink flowers. The evergreen foliage is still a beautiful mahogany brown from the winter, the new growth will be green and it turns each fall. This is America’s most popular Rhododendron and it performs very well in most conditions.
