In front of Highland Hall is our ‘Elizabeth’ Magnolia {M.x acuminata ‘Elizabeth’} with its yellow flowers just beginning to open. This was PSU’s 2009 Arbor Day tree planting and it appears to have come through its first winter in fine form. At the south end of Smith Hall is an ‘Aristocrat’ Bradford Callery Pear {Pyrus calleryana ‘Aristocrat’} in bloom with clusters of white flowers. There is a Bradford Pear blooming at the south end of the upper Boyd Parking lot at Pleasant St as well as along the north side of Memorial Hall. These trees all have glossy green foliage and excellent multi-colored fall foliage that is very long lasting if not cut short by an early hard frost.
