mollis Boskoop is a plant for winter flowers.
While there are small trees to provide foliage or flower colour for all seasons, few flower in winter, the exception being the Witch Hazel (Hamamelis
mollis), smothered in sweet-scented yellow flowers in mid-winter.
My winter-flowering jasmine is usually one of the first with its floral gifts but it's been pipped this year by the witch hazel hamamelis
mollis - my favourite one being H.
- Piles that bleed profusely accompanied by a sensation as if the back would break.
li th t f Hamamelis
are the stars of any winter to early spring flowering shrubbery, when there's little else in flower.
Here are a few seasonal suggestions: * Winter - Christmas box (sarcococca), lonicera fragrantissima, mahonia japonica, witch hazel (hamamelis
mollis) and viburnum bodnantense.
Plant a yellow flowered form of hamamelis
mollis with a beech hedge as a background and watch the colours in January and February as they shine brightly in the garden.
A Among my favourites are witch hazel (hamamelis
), fothergilla, euonymus alata and many of the small cherry and rowan trees.
But the very best of the winter flowering shrubs must be Hamamelis
These include winter sweet, hamamelis
(witch hazel) and sarcococca.
(witch hazel) Choose Hamamelis
x intermedia `Jelena' for wonderful spidery orange flowers, or `Pallida' for the yellow equivalent.
Winter flowers Witch hazel (Hamamelis
) is a bit different.
