 What is even more fascinating is the new Hamamelis
species published in the current issue of Sida (the
Arundinaria was published last year in Sida). Having
seen it in the wild I can say it is quite different
from the 'cane' in Missouri and Arkansas, and the rest
of the midwest.

 It seems the new Hamamelis may be the long lost
macrophylla, but is given the name ovalis. 

 Sorry to be off-topic.
