Under the ‘Varied Directions’ Larch {Larix decidua ‘Varied Directions’} there are a few flowers of Winter Aconite {Eranthis hyemalis}; a bright yellow cup that will be followed by finely cut foliage.  Both the flowers and foliage are similar and related to our summer blooming   Buttercups {Ranunculus}.  On the south and east sides of Ellen Reed Hall are four Vernal Witchhazels with small strap like flowers in shades of yellow and red.  The flowers open and close depending on temperatures and often last three weeks or more.  Our earliest flowering shrub every year. This is very similar to our Common Witchhazel {Hamamelis virginiana} that is our latest blooming shrub each fall and is a very prolific part of our forest here in Plymouth and throughout the northeast.
