Lucius Beebe Memorial Library - Trees
There are two different types of lovely flowering trees outside the Avon Street (side) entrance to the library. Both are varieties of ornamental flowering cherry. The ones to the right of the library entrance are Prunus serrulata, or Kwanzan Cherries. The one to the left of the entrance, next to the driveway, is a Prunus "Hally Jolivette". Both flower for a couple of weeks in late April and early May.
Along the fence by the Main Street plaza in front of the library are hydrangeas ("Bella Anna") and day lilies ("Happy Returns" and "Stella D'oro"). They are flanked by two "Emperor I" Japanese maples.
In August of 2006 a crabapple Malus "Purple Prince" was added just to the right of the Avon Street entrance.
