Outside the Tess Reed entrance to Silver CAC are a few Redvein Enkianthus {E. campanulatus} that have very attractive reddish flowers that hang down in pendulous clusters. The color varies quite a bit from plant to plant, some are cream colored with red veins, others are mostly red, all are very attractive. They also have good red fall color. Outside the east entrance of Speare Hall is a planting of Big Root Geranium {G. macrorrhizum} that is an excellent groundcover and its purple flowers are just coming out. This plant was used to replace the bark mulch circles we have around our trees, there are two European Larches {Larix deciduas} on the south side of Ellen Reed Hall that have this treatment.
