 At the southeast corner of Lamson Library there is a ‘Merrill’ Magnolia {M.x loebneri ‘Merrill’} about to bloom with fragrant white flowers. This is the most common Magnolia on campus and will open over the next few days in many locations. On the west side of Russell House there is a large ‘Brouer’s Beauty’ Pieris {P.x Brouer’s Beauty’} about to open its flower buds. These buds are red all winter and help make this our most ornamental shrub during the winter months. On the south side of Speare Hall is a ‘P.J.M.’ Rhododendron {R. x ‘P.J.M.’} that is blooming on the side of the shrub closest to the building. This is America’s most popular variety of Rhododendron and was hybridized at Weston Nurseries in Hopkinton, Mass.
