Corylopsis spicata

Spike Winter Hazel

In March, masses of hanging tassels of sweet-smelling yellow flowers appear on bare branches. The Witch Hazel-like leaves change color in autumn. These plants are slow-growing and their heights vary from 3 to 13 feet. Prefer neutral or acid soils. Plant in a sheltered area in light shade to prevent frost damage to flowers. Remove dead branches after flowering. Water regularly during growing and blooming season, less at other times.
