At the main entrance to Boyd Hall is a planting of white Common Lilacs {Syringa vulgaris} that have very fragrant panicles in full bloom. Next to the Children’s Center are Lilacs with purple flowers. There is an enormous color choice in Lilacs from white to pink to deepest purple. Along the stone wall just below Belknap Hall is ‘Olga Mezitt’ Rhododendron {R. x Olga Mezitt’} in bloom with pink flowers covering the plant. Another hybrid from Weston Nurseries in Massachusetts. Also in the same bed is a Dwarf Fothergill {F. gardenii} that has white flowers in the shape of bottle brushes. These have among the most spectacular orange fall foliage of any shrub we grow. By the Silver Center parking lot are several ‘Centurion’ Crabapples’ {Malus ‘Centurion’} with rose-red flowers. This variety is also notable for its glossy red fruit in the fall. I will be giving landscape Plant Tours of the campus on May 24th and 25th at noon, meeting in front of the HUB. On Tuesday we will look at the south half of campus and on Wednesday, the north half. Hope to see you there.
