Thank you John, the flowers have opened up more than they were, and this was exactly the effect I was looking. It’s gonna look great in the woodland walk. Where it is now in its pot is roughly where I’ll be planting it. Will have some tall trellis soon in front of the polytunnel too @johninbrighton
I’ve been wanting a Witch Hazel for ages, and I couldn’t make up my mind which cultivar i liked best, then I found one two years ago at Wisley, but then couldn’t get it as out of stock online everywhere I looked. Then it randomly appeared at my local garden centre in November. Just on its own. So I snapped it up quick. I can’t even remember what I paid for it, although I was desperate so it wouldn’t have impacted me purchasing it 🤭.
It has just started to flower. When I was choosing it was between Vesna, and Jelena. Although when I did the sniff test, it seemed Vesna had a much stronger fragrance than Jelena. I’d like to get a red one too at some point but that can wait for now #hamamelis #hamamelisxintermedia #hamamelisxintermediavesna #witchhazel
It started off with the colour Vivien, and I decided to go with one called Jelena. It was nice burnt orange look, but when I saw one at Wisley a couple of years ago I was disappointed I couldn’t smell much. Maybe I’d missed it’s peak, but there was one planted next to it called Vesna which was virtually same colour and much stronger scent 😊👍🏼 @sadieberg
