Intimations of Autumn – Witch Hazel and Virginia Creeper


I’m afraid I don’t know which cultivar of Hamamelis this is (a sale item, healthy enough but long since separated from any identifying label) but what gorgeous autumn colouring…. I’ll have to wait a few months to see the distinctive thread-like and hopefully fragrant flowers, on bare winter branches, to determine who this is. In the meantime it is enjoying the semi-shade beneath the leafless Horse Chestnut Tree at the bottom of the garden.

The Virginia Creeper – Parthenocissus quinquefolia – is colouring up well too…
