In front of Prospect Hall, along the curb, are several ‘Red Sprite’ Winterberries {Ilex veticillata ‘Red Sprite’} with copious amounts of fruit turning red with our last few cool nights. The fruit will last well into winter and is even more striking when the leaves drop and the ground is covered with snow. On the west side of Lamson Library is a Blue Holly {Ilex x meserveae} that is having one of its best fruiting seasons. Many red fruits contrast with its deep bluish-green evergreen foliage. This is our alternative to the American Holly {Ilex opaca} which is not hardy.
