Plant Tour stop #7

The planted area at the south entrance to Millington Hall contains several succulents, including a Prickly Pear Cactus that blooms in early June. Two mature Southern Magnolias (Magnolia grandiflora) planted against the south wall bloom heavily in late May and early June.

On the near southern lawn, on the former site of a clay tennis court, can be found a number of good-sized trees: another Southern Magnolia, two Cryptomeria (Cryptomeria japonica), a Blue Atlas Cedar (Cedrus atlantica glauca), a Deodar Cedar (Cedrus deodara), and a Sawtooth Oak (Quercus acutissima).

Further south toward Andrews Hall are a Full Moon Maple (Acer japonicum) and an excellent specimen of the Little-Leaf Linden (Tilia cordata).
