Notes:

Would love some help to identify this beautiful, fragrant plant. Orchid-like yellow buds appear in January and bloom pale with red center in February. Bush is a quick grower and very hardy.

    It looks like Witchazel, Hamamelis sp., which is a winter bloomer with flowers similar to the buds in the photo. http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/depts/hort/consumer/factsheets/trees-new/hamamelis_x_intermedia.html
