In front of Boyd Hall is a large group of ‘Cunningham’s White’ Rhododendron {R.catawbiense ‘Cunningham’s White’} that has white flowers above a mounded compact habit. This very well respect variety is coming into its own at Boyd and hopefully will outgrow the Horsetail {Equisetum sp.} that is rampant throughout this bed. In the large garden at the corner of the Silver Center by the Roundabout are several ‘White Lights’ Azaleas {Rhododendron x ‘White Lights’} that have fragrant white flowers. These plants are part of a series of Azalea that were hybridized in Minnesota and are available in several colors. Along the walkway from Holmes House to the east side of Rounds Hall is a ‘Brioti’ Horsechestnut that has very showy 10″ flower spikes of pink flowers with yellow throats. The flowers are very sturdy, often lasting 3 weeks.
