There were 16 varieties of Witch Hazels in bloom at the RBG Arboretum today as well as one in the Woodland Garden next to the Rose Garden. The Skunk Cabbages continue to bloom in the Hendrie Valley and there were Snowdrops blooming in the RBG Spicer Court.
Oh, one more flower was blooming; the female flowers on the Turkish Hazelnut, in the Arboretum, was just starting to bloom. The male catkins are still waiting.
Go to the west side of the Arboretum parking circle and look west for the tree, then look very closely at the twigs as the flowers are very small!
