Would love to be beside a glowing fire today Cathy – a radiator doesn’t quite have the same appeal.
‘Jelena’ is a star in your winter garden!
Haha, yes that’s true! I agree about Jelena – she just gets better and better!
I can feel the warmth from here. 😉 Looks better than ever this year. When was it planted Cathy?
I checked back on last year and yes, she is flowering better this year and I shall show a comparison soon, probably for Six on Saturday. I think I have probably had it for about 15 years but I shall check back old photographs and and get a more accurate date. It was certainly one of the first I had, but I have got a feeling I might have replaced the original as at first I tried planting them on the edge of the woodland before realising they needed a more open situation
I have done a check back on the blog (that search button is so useful, as is the search month option!) and it was only planted in March 2013 (as a replacement, as I thought) when it was no more than 2 feet high at the very most.
I have found the same Cathy… my memory is sketchy at times so I do often find myself searching my own and other blogs for things I have forgotten! So the witch hazel needed a few years to get to that size. I prefer to get small shrubs and let them settle in a few years so I will definitely get round to buying one soon! Thanks Cathy.
Definitely an investment, Cathy; you won’t regret it.
It is looking great this year. Much more substantial and luscious!
I agree, Allison – it really stops me in my tracks
Now that is some much needed ‘good news!’
This is why winter blooming plants are such an asset to a garden!
That’s a beauty! Thanks for sharing the warmth!
You are welcome – sorry I can’t share the real thing with you!
What a beautiful blaze!
Isn’t it just!
I feel the warmth of Jelena’s “flames”: she is exuberant, magnificent, in full splendor, I love it and I love it. It is a jewel in this month for the garden: all flower, I love it. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita.
Thanks Margarita, she is is indeed a very lovely plant to have in the garden
