I have a large twenty-odd year old Witch hazel, which at this time of year is a wonderous sight. It's limbed up to about 6 feet and must be close to 12 feet in height. It has been in flower now for over a month and with a few degrees of sunshine, glows in the winter garden. I only wish I could take a picture that would capture extraordinary beauty; Why isn't it more popular in this climate where January and February seem endless?
