My wife and I noticed this plant in a
small city park in Helen on 2/18/12.
It also has a very nice scent

    Fragrant winterhazel (Corylopsis glabrescens)

    Could be maybe?

    Definitely edgeworthia. I have one in my yard. They have beautiful bark in the winter, very fragrant flowers in Feb. and March, then nice leaves all summer. One of my favorites.

    A neighbor gave us an edgeworthia plant, and it has been a wonderful plant. We live in East Point, GA. We really like the foliage during the summer, and the awesome structure of the stems, plus the intoxicating smell in February from the flowers. We have been giving away new shoots that have been grown in pots. 🙂
