Hamamelis x intermedia

Witch Hazel

Witch Hazel offers striking winter color with its bright, fragrant bloom when most other plants are dormant. The small but showy frost-proof flowers open on leafless branches, and clusters of narrow petals last for several weeks. Blooms on the many flowering cultivars range from yellow to orange to red. Red flowering types also have the best red fall leaf colors. An extract from the bark is used as an astringent, and on bruises and sprains. Take care where you plant, for Witch Hazel grows 8 to 15 feet high. Add organic matter to soil when planting, and mulch to keep the soil cool and moist.
