At the left of the Bagley House on Merrill St. is a bed of Exbury Azaleas {Rhododendron x ‘Exbury’} with an orange flowered ‘Gibraltar’ on the left and a yellow flowered ‘Percil’ on the right. Very showy flowers from years of hybridizing efforts in England. In front of Mary Lyons Hall are several trees that have groundcover plantings of Bigroot Geranium {G. macrorrhizum} that are blooming with magenta flowers. This plant eliminates almost all weed control around the trunks of these trees and is very attractive throughout the growing season. Along the north side of the Snack bar at the HUB is a group of ‘Nova Zembla’ Rhododendrons {R. catawbiense ‘Nova Zembla’} in bloom with large clusters of deep red flowers above its evergreen foliage. This is one of our most dependable broadleaf evergreen shrubs and is having a very good blooming season. Outside the northeast corner of Speare Annex are a few Highbush Blueberry plants in bloom. This excellent edible ornamental has cream colored bell-shaped flowers yielding delicious fruit mid-summer, as well as excellent summer foliage and first rate red fall foliage.
