At the west entrance to the HUB is an ‘Early Amethyst’ Purple Beautyberry {Callicarpa dichotoma ‘Early Amethyst’} that has very small pink flowers that will yeild 1/8″ diameter fruits in a beautiful shade of lilac-violet. The fruit is beautifully displayed above the leaves in about a months time. We need a little luck with a late frost for these fruits to achieve their color, if we are lucky it is a pretty sight. At the  west wentrance to Speare Hall is a Siebold Viburnum {V. sieboldi} with red to orange fruit above its lustrous green foliage. At the southeast corner of Prospect as well as behind the Children’s Center on Langdon Street we have more examples of this Viburnum which is having a very fruitful season. Thank you to all  of my readers over the last 15 years of Plants in Bloom. This is my last post before my retirement.   Steve
