Depending on the weather, the hybrid witchhazels may be flowering right now. This plant blooms in winter after a brief warming period which means they can bloom anytime from mid-January to March. Watch for signs of swelling buds. And, make sure you go out and breathe in the spicy scent, once the flowers have fully opened. A wonderful way to battle the winter blues! If you can’t wait for the blooms in the garden, cut several branches and bring them inside to force blooms.
Hamamelis brightens up the winter garden so beautifully! I love the textural component as well. Welcome to Blotanical!
I love Witchhazel. Saturday we worked in the yard cleaning up debris left by snow-ice and wind storms. The fragrance and bright yellow flowers of Hamamelis ‘Pallida’ cheered my spirit.
