At the Arboretum 12/26/23

In this last week of 2023, several plants are blooming in the patio between Matilda’s Cottage and the Haggerty Education Center. The delicate, strappy, reddish flowers of Hamamelis vernalis ‘Red Imp’ (Witch Hazel) are beginning their annual show, the Jasminum nudiflorum (Winter Jasmine) on the fence is just beginning to open its lemon yellow flowers and the Edgeworthia chrysantha shrub (Paper Bush) buds are ready to burst into bloom. It’s such a treat to see flowers in the December gardens!
