In the shrub garden at the north side of the HUB Snack Bar there are four Korean Stewartias {S. koreana} blooming with white flowers accented by yellow stamens. This tree also has attractive exfoliating bark as the plant ages. In the same garden are several Rosebay Rhododendron {R. maximum} blooming with large clusters of pinkish white flowers. This native shrub used to be a large part of the under story of New Hampshire forests and a small area is preserved in Rhododendron State Park in Fitzwilliam. It is well worth the visit to see this plant forming the understory of a mature forest.  Growing under the Mountain Laurel on the north side of Silver Center is the evergreen herb Galax {G. aphylla} with spikes of white flowers. The foliage is often used in corsages.
