In front of the Kelley House [aka Human Resources] is a Dwarf Korean Lilac {Syringa meyeri ‘Palibin’} in bloom with fragrant purple flower spikes covering most of the shrub. This plant is a great choice for a medium sized, very dependable flowering Lilac. Right next to the aforementioned Lilac is a ‘Blue Muffin’ Viburnum {V. dentatum ‘Blue Muffin’} that has clusters of white flower. The flowers will yield blue fruit mid-summer and the foliage will turn bright red in the fall. This is also an excellent moderate sized shrub. Along the east side of Russell House is a very attractive ‘Shasta’ Doublefile Viburnum {V.plicatum tomentosum ‘Shasta’} that was introduced by our National Arboretum. The name comes from the way the flowers sit above the foliage. In front of the Bagley House is a Carolina Allspice {Calycanthus floridus} that has deep reddish brown flowers that appear dried. The flowers have a strong fruity fragrance and the fragrance varies from plant to plant. Across the street from this plant is our European Tricolor Beech {Fagus sylvatica ‘Tricolor’} that has variegated leaves mostly green with pink edges. This is planted in high shade from mature trees to prevent scorching on the pink portions of the leaves.
