A lovely witch hazel

I'd thought that the glorious winter flowering witch hazel in front of our mountain house was a Chinese witch hazel, until reading my garden blogging friend Janet's post about Hamamelis vernalis (hmm, maybe it was on FB?).  I couldn't find the reference for a link -- but thanks, Janet, for pointing me in the right direction!

It was looking lovely last weekend, complete with flowers. It certainly seems to be  H. vernalis!

  1. It is a beauty! Think there was a conversation between me and Gail and Randy on FB about Hamamelis vernalis.

  3. All we do is talk about spring here. All this snow cover has to be good protection though, so I'm happy.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
