Along the north side of Memorial Hall are 4 Bradford Pears {Pyrus calleryana ‘Bradford’} coming into bloom. These ornamental Pears have glossy green leaves and outstanding fall color that is usually cut short by a severe frost in the very late fall. This is the same tree that is flowering along Plymouth’s Main Street. At the south end of the stone wall just east of Belknap Hall is a Redbud {Cercis canadensis} coming into bloom. The intensely pink buds will open in the next few days. We also have 2 large Redbuds between D&M and the church on its north side, these bloom a few days later because of their exposure. Next to the Redbud near Belknap Hall is a group of ‘Molly Fordham’ Rhododendrons {R. x ‘Molly Fordham’} that have white flowers and small evergreen foliage. At the northwest corner of Hall Dorm is a group of ‘Judd’ Viburnums {V. juddi} that have deep red flowers buds that open to very fragrant white flowers. We have several species of Viburnum that will be opening in the coming days with clusters of white and cream colored flowers.
