In front of the southeast corner of Prospect Hall is a Siebold Viburnum {V. sieboldi} in bloom with large clusters of cream colored flowers. The foliage is the most lustrous of any plant we grow as well as extremely aromatic, often said to be similar to green peepers. Usually grown as a multi-stem shrub, it lends itself to be trained as a small tree, as it is here and at the west entrance of Speare Hall.

In the fall there will be coral colored fruit that will last well into winter making a striking display when there is snow on the ground.
