Above the Grafton parking lot on High St. is a group of three ‘Satomi’ Kousa Dogwoods {Cornus kousa ‘Satomi’} with pink bracts [similar to petals} in abundance. Very showy flowers that will lighten in color as they age. In the fall it will have red fruits and as the tree ages it develops attractive mottled bark. In front of the Bagley House on Highland St. is a small group of Red Buckeye {Aesculus pavia} that has very attractive 5 lobed foliage as well as one red flower spike. At the southwest corner of Smith Hall on High St is a group of ‘Onandaga’ Vibrunums {V. sargentii ‘Onandaga’} with clusters of white flowers. The new growth has a red cast to it and red fruit and red fall foliage will follow. Next to the main entrance of D&M Hall is an ‘Erie’ Viburnum with large 8″ clusters of creamy white flowers, to be followed by red fruit and very striking mahogany fall foliage. This is a fabulous shrub with interest from spring into early winter.
