- Harlequin Glorybower (pictured): Late summer blooms grace this tree near the library, Franz Hall, and the walkway by the baseball stadium. You can smell its perfume-like fragrance from blocks away.
- Goldenrain tree: Flower clusters from the summer turn into papery fruit capsules that resemble Japanese lanterns and persist all winter. You can find them near Buckley Center Auditorium.
- Ground cover roses, shrub roses: Pink “flower carpet” roses bloom all summer in front of the Chiles Center sign; pink and white Meidiland (pronounced May-de-land) roses bloom around Franz Hall and along the road that goes by the health center.
- In 1982, the estate of William Ingram of Salem donated many mature Camellias to the University, including several large C. Sasanquas, which can be seen blooming from early winter through early spring. Several are located on the east side of Howard Hall.
