That’s it I’m afraid – one large (albeit labelled) gallery – a pictorial tour of the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens in Hampshire earlier this month (well, a walk around some of it, but most of that put under the camera lens)…. The Hamamelis collection I stumbled across was in…

Hamamelis for a New Year

A choice selection of Witch Hazels flowering at RHS Wisley just now – such delicate flowers seem impossibly impervious to the worst of the weather but untroubled they are. I would have found more on Battleston Hill but the weather forecast (chill but bright and sunny) gave way to a bitingly cold rain and so…

That’s it I’m afraid – one large (albeit labelled) gallery – a pictorial tour of the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens in Hampshire earlier this month (well, a walk around some of it, but most of that put under the camera lens)….

Autumn finery at Kew Gardens – Liquidambers, of course, my favourite Cotinus, Liriodendron, Hamamelis and Prunus, the ornamental cherries…

(More) Bewitched by Hamamelis at Kew…

Bewitched… Hamamelis at Kew

A grove of Witch Hazel, Hamamelis, at Kew – like those at RHS Wisley, in profuse bloom – these specimens are obviously in full sun rather than a woodland setting – they form part of the Mediterranean Garden displays, a setting for King William’s Temple, and they seem to be liking it! Smaller plants than…

All about witch hazel – Hamamelis of every hue at RHS Wisley

Hamamelis x intermedia Orange Peel –  a fine, deeply coloured witch hazel Hamamelis x intermedia Orange Peel (above and below) a fine specimen at the base of Battleston Hill at RHS Wisley. (below) Hamamelis x intermedia Pallida – lighting up the woodland slopes at Wisley (above) Hamamelis x intermedia Pallida is deservedly one of the…

Hamamelis – Witch hazel

Hamamelis (Witch hazel) – probably ‘Jelena’ – a real garden treat with coppery orange flowers in early to mid-winter and orange to yellow and red autumn foliage. A plant grown as much for autumn colour as these frost-resistant, fragrant spider-shaped flowers. They are good specimen plants and are also effective when grown in groups in…
