In the bed along the west side of Silver CAC are three Sourwood trees {Oxydendron arboreum} that have deep dark red foliage and very graceful seed panicles. The seed will remain on the trees well into winter, making this is an excellent four season ornamental tree. In front of Prospect Hall is a large mass of ‘Henry’s Garnet’ Virginia Sweetspire {Itea virginica ‘Henry’s Garnet’} that has also changed to a beautiful deep red. This award winning plant will retain its foliage long after most plants have dropped their leaves and will be very attractive well into November.
