In the courtyard on the west side of Mary Lyons hall is a Siberian Peashrub {Caragana arborescens} in bloom with yellow flowers highlighted by the bright green pinnately compound foliage. In front of Memorial Hall is a group of Highbush Blueberries {Vaccinium corymbosum} beginning to flower.  In the same bed as the blueberries are two ‘Allegheny’ Viburnums {V. x rhytidiphylloides ‘Allegheny’} that have cream colored flower clusters. These plants are semi-evergreen and hold their outstanding foliage well into winter; they also have excellent displays of red fruit that eventually turn black.
