In the UK there’s not much in flower at this time of year. Mid-winter is the time that most of us rely on colourful stems, bark and berries for colour in our gardens. Evergreen shrubs with interesting leaves are good too. They are hardy and reliable and for most of the year can be left alone to get on with providing a permanent framework for your star flowering plants.
Bewitched by Witch Hazel
The Witch Hazel is one of our most beautiful winter flowering shrubs. Originating from China the spidery flowers open in even the worst of British winters filling the air with spicy fragrance.
