    Interesting images!
    What is the name of flowers?

    tetsu – this would be commonly known as ‘Pat Ballard’ tassel bush (or silk tassel).

    The flowers on this Garrya are really pretty, but are the leaves normally spotted like this or do they have a disease?

    I look forward to my “Pat Ballard” blooming every year and tell as many people as possible about it! It is about 10 yrs. old and I would like to move it to a better location. I’ve had to keep it trimmed pretty severely and would like to let it grow to it’s potential. How would I do this by hand, since I can’t get large equipment into my fenced yard? Or is it even possible? I know I would have to cut the roots back-but would this kill it? It would break my heart to have that happen. Can I propagate?

    I have a Garrya issaquahensis or fremontii (I thought it was G. issaquahensis, but doesn’t G. issaquahensis have fuzzy undersides on the leaves? Mine doesn’t.)
    It has more fungal spots than the one shown here. So many, in fact, that I was considering replacing the plant despite its beautiful catkins (flowers).
    Anyone have any information on (a) which Garrya species have non-fuzzy leaf undersides and (b) whether any of our Garrya have better fungal resistance?
    Thanks.

    There are a series of this plant (although not the same variety) in full bloom under the bart tracks behind el cerrito plaza right now. one of the most stunning displays of the plant I have ever seen in one of the oddest places.

    There are some old growth garrya under the bart tracks in El Cerrito behind the shopping center that are all slated to be removed… Someone should claim them or protect them, they are beautiful specimens….. Between Brighton and Fairmont
