What about Gorse? It flowers in Jan-Feb, even December in mild winters.

while gorse can be attractive in flower it is viciously spiny and can grow quite large in the garden. in the PNW of north America it is potentially just as invasive as scotch broom (which is a huge pest in and of itself) plus it is incredibly inflammable (because of oils in the "leaves" and stems) in our dry summers. it has already invaded literally thousands of acres in coastal s.w. Oregon and is extremely difficult to control once established.
