We chose this tree to plant in memory of my husband's oldest son...because it blooms at the time of year that he passed away. He was such a character! So we have to smile when we look at this tree and remember some of his antics and pranks!
The blooms are fairly small...just a fringe really. But they make up for it with their vivid color!
Wouldn't it be a pretty sight to see these blooms against a snowy background?
Don't get me wrong - I am not asking for snow!
I have another small tree that is at is best in the winter months...a Contorted Filbert.
What will be blooming next? Forsythia? Daffodils?
I am looking forward to spring!
