Along the west side of the walkway between Lamson Library and the Russell House are ‘Purple Gem’ Rhododendrons {R. x ‘Purple Gem’} with bluish flowers on dwarf plants. Unfortunately their brittle wood does not handle the weight of our snow load very well. There is another planting under the Saucer Magnolia at Memorial Hall that fares a little better by being under the canopy of the Magnolia. In front of the Hogan House on Merrill St. is a Pinkshell Azalea {Rhododendron vaseyi} coming into bloom with beautiful pink flowers. The leaves emerge after flowering and often turn red in the fall. Behind the shuttle stop on Highland Street is a large group of Myrtle-leaf Rhododendrons {R.x myrtifolium} that have deep pink flowers above small evergreen leaves. Opposite Memorial Hall is a young ‘Rivers’ European Beech {Fagus sylvatica ‘Riversii’} that has beautiful reddish foliage. As it matures it will turn a very deep purple and hold that color throughout the growing season. We have other ‘Rivers’ Beeches in front of Mary Lyons Hall and Pemi Hall.
