At the northeast corner of Hyde Hall is a White Fringetree {Chionanthus virginicus} that has white fleecy flowers along with bright green foliage. Rarely there is a dark blue fruit in summer. Along the west side of the HUB are several hybrid Mountain Laurels {Kalmia latifolia} that have colorful buds before opening to flowers in shades of red, pink, and white. The buds are just beginning to show color and as the flowers open I will update the pictures. Along the west side of the parking lot at the north end of the Silver Center, covering a concrete retaining wall is a fabulous planting of Climbing Hydrangea {H. anomala petiolaris} that has lustrous green foliage with large flat clusters of white flowers. When the leaves drop in the fall, attractive cinnamon colored stems are revealed. This vine climbs by clinging to vertical surface and can cover large areas once established.
