Forming a neat mound 30cm high this Thalictrum has been flowering solidly since February.
It originates from Turkey and likes to be in dry shade - what more could you ask of a plant?
I will try to propagate it for next year, A gem from Evolution Plants,

Lonicera elisae is a hardy and very reliable winter flowering shrub.
Supposedly it is fragrant but the weather is usually too cold then to catch the scent.
Unlike Lonicera x purpusii, it flowers on completely bare wood. Should it come out in June it would be hardly noticed but is a welcome sight here in February and March.

This is a newish evergreen climber with attractive foliage and reddish stems.
It is clearly vigorous but there does seem to be some doubts as to it's hardiness.
I have yet to test it with a cold winter.
It has delicately fragrant, waxy bell-shaped flowers from January to March.
Try it in a sunny sheltered site.
