Winter flowering: January - February
Winter flowering plants mark the floristic beginning of the year in January/ February.
During warmer periods the first woody plants start flowering, e.g. Winter Jasmin (Jasminum nudiflorum) with its magnificently shining yellow flowers, and the Viburnum hybrid Viburnum x bodnantense bearing pink inflorescences of intense scent. A little later the different Witch-Hazel species and cultivars (Hamamelis spp.) start flowering, as well as the Japanese Allspice (Chimonanthus praecox) of Chinese origin, which releases an intense Pink-like scent.
