My hamamelis virginiana is blooming! This is the fall witch hazel. I have had a spring-blooming witch hazel, hamamelis vernalis, for several years, and I put in a fall-blooming slip a few years ago. This is the first fall it has bloomed. It is an interesting plant, in either variety. It blooms very early - February! - or late - November - depending on which one you are looking at.
Here are a few pics of my fall witch hazel:
