Pictured from top to bottom L to R
Meyer lilac (Sarah Duke Gardens)this picture was taken this morning
Flagstone walk outside of the Davison Building on Duke's West Campus
Indian Hawthorne in bloom near the visitor parking lots at Sarah Duke Gardens....I always forget that this dependable evergreen actually has nice flowers. I usually think of it for its foliage / drought resistance. Even though that puts it on a list of "carefree" shrubs, I've seen plenty struggle in locations where there is not enough sun or the drainage is not good.
A native Fringe Tree Chionanthus virginicus- a nice blooming tree that does not wait until it is mature before flowering. This almost-medium sized specimen was probably planted about five years ago when the Bostock Library was constructed.
