At the entrance to Boyd Hall are several Dwarf ‘Purple Gem’ Rhododendrons {R. x ‘Purple Gem’} in bloom with light purple flowers, evergreen foliage and a branching habit that has difficulty supporting our usual snow loads. Along the south side of Mary Lyons Hall is a bed of Royal Azaleas {R. schlippenbachii} that have fragrant pale pink flowers and foliage more attractive than most other azaleas. They also have colorful fall foliage with shades of yellow, orange and red. Just behind the Shuttle Stop on Highland Street is a group of Myrtle-leaf Rhododendrons {R. myrtlefolium} that have evergreen foliage and bright pink flowers with a compact low growing habit. In front of the Hogan House is a group of Pinkshell Azaleas {R. vaseyi} with pink flowers on a deciduous shrub with a tall open habit.This native of the Blue Ridge Mtns. is a very dependable performer in Plymouth. Outside the southeast corner of Hall Commons is a group of Dwarf Fothergillas {F. gardenii} that have small white flowers in the shape of a bottlebrush. Summer foliage is a nice deep green and yellow, orange, and red leaves in the fall highlight this fine shrub.
