Mine usually bloom in early to mid Feb...sometimes late Jan. For some reason my hybrids and vernalis bloom in that same time frame.

Nothing yet. I do have several selections on the way this spring.

I'll post if any open up.

I love witchhazel and my Jelena usually opens Feb 21. So far, no flower bud clusters except 1. Should all the flower buds clusters be visible at this point? Can't distinguish between those and leaf buds. It's been a very cold winter so I suspect it delayed or perhaps killed some buds.

Yes, the two I walk by in my neighborhood are in full bloom since last week.

'Jelena'...

VV, is Wisley usually that florous or is that just a really nice cluster on that branch?

Nice pics, thanks for sharing.

'Wisley Supreme' is better than that picture. My little plant is just getting its legs under it, after being abused in a container for a couple years.

I will try to get images of older established plants in our parks in Louisville, so that you can see how tremendous this selection really is.

Vernal Witch Hazel taken today against the snow. The bitty flowers are impervious to cold.

'Pallida' in bloom today with its spicey sweet flowers. This selection does not have the stiff, upright habid of 'AP' instead it is more graceful and picturesque, also flowering is earlier since 'AP' has not opened up yet.
