I have a mature Hamamelis Mollis "Pallida" in my garden which, four years ago, had one of its branches split from the trunk. I carefully taped and wired the branch back in place and it survived. However, ever since it was damaged that branch blossoms three weeks earlier than the rest of the shrub. Is it usual for a portion of a plant which has been stressed in some way to exhibit such a long "memory"?
