Hamamelis x intemedia 'Jelena'

I've been so excited about the unusual flowers that our extraordinarily warm winter is bringing out that I forgot all about the plants that would be flowering now anyway. They are doing their regular thing except to a degree not often encountered. This witch-hazel kept catching my eye as I moved loads of CR-6 to the collection.

If you're interested in gardens in winter and you're within striking distance of the Arboretum, this weekend would be a good time to spend a couple of hours here. There are masses of Prunus mume and Hamamerlis flowering, plenty of camellias, hellebores galore, plus a miscellany of odds and ends.  This is as good as it gets in early February.
