This is the Brevipetala Witch Hazel, also called Chinese Witch Hazel. This particular bush grows in the RBG Woodland Garden just below the Rose Garden. It was almost in bloom on Friday, January 22 when I walked by.

Last year it was in bloom already on New Year's Day. Other years it has waited until February.

You got what you wanted!
A winter flower for your winter flower tour! :P

But yeah, that's fairly late, although it's not surprising, considering the lack of winter we've been having!
