This one is Hamamelis 'Pallida', which Emma got for me 2 or 3 years ago. Pale yellow flowers, and, the BEST scent of all of its group. It's been confined to a pot, but hasn't seemed to mind too much. My plan is to make an early flowering bed at the front of the house, with two or three of these taking the centre stage.
I got a small 'Orange Beauty' from Badger Nurseries at the weekend- a bargain at £5.49. The flowers are darker than Pallida, it's also very fragrant.
