Chimonanthus praecox in full bloom???
It does flower before Christmas fairly regularly, but usually only a few flowers open per shoot. When, or if, it gets cold enough to damage those flowers there are plenty of buds left to open. Well, this year all the eggs are pretty much in one basket. It's very impressive and I love the fact that no two years have the same profile.
