ROSACEAE (Rose family)

An old, standard recently reintroduced to campus, this graceful tree has branches sometimes sweeping the ground and pink ‘Pendula’ flowers in late winter. Considered by many a worthy tree even if it never bloomed. Two specimens grow in planters between Hoover Tower and the adjacent exhibition pavilion.
