In the lower area on the south side of Speare Hall is a Korean Mountain Ash {Sorbus alnifolia} in full bloom with clusters of whiter flowers. In the fall these are followed by coral colored fruit that can be very striking against the snow covered ground. At the rear entrance to Russell House is a Flowering Dogwood {Cornus florida} with white bracts, many of which are not fully formed.

However, it is still a very nice small tree with attractive foliage, red fall foliage, and red fruit {rarely}.
