Near where my daughter lives in Palmers Green (north London) there's a hedge of winter jasmine with chaenomeles flowering through it. Outlandish!

All I can offer just now is a spray of ceanothus in full bloom. I am worried about my magnolia stellata as the buds are so big now that frost would be devastating.
