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.

At the  west wentrance to Speare Hall is a Siebold Viburnum {V. sieboldi} with red to orange fruit above its lustrous green foliage.
