At the east end of the Athletic Center is an ‘Indian Summer’ Crabapple {Malus ‘Indian Summer’} coming into full bloom with reddish pink flowers that will yield attractive bright red fruit. At the southeast corner of Prospect Hall is our first ‘Carol Mackie’ Daphne {Daphne x burkwoodi ‘Carol mackie’} to bloom with very fragrant pink flowers just above the small green foliage with cream colored margins. We have a large planting of this Daphne along the north side of the HUB that come into bloom a few days later. In the bed next to Prospect Hall’s loading dock is a Purpleleaf Sand Cherry {Prunus x cistena} with small pinkish white flowers above the developing new dark red foliage. The foliage holds its deep red color throughout the growing season though it does have a rather ungainly habit.
