Edgeworthia chrysantha has lush, tropical-looking foliage that turns yellow in autumn before dropping. In winter, shimmery white buds gradually open to reveal wonderfully fragrant, yellow flowers that last for months.

Mahonia x media ‘Winter Sun’ – a winter-flowering hummingbird magnet. This evergreen shrub produces sprays of sunny yellow flowers, is fragrant and even offers modest drought-tolerance to the mix. Who wouldn’t want this in their garden? (OK, it’s a bit prickly. But some of us aren’t put off by that sort of thing!)

Witch hazel’s buds look like embryonic little reindeer antler buds. So pretty.
