Hamamelis virginiana, known as common witch hazel, is a fall-winter-blooming, deciduous shrub or small tree that is native to woodlands, forest margins and stream banks in eastern North America. It typically grows 15-20’ tall with a similar spread in cultivation. Witch Hazel produces a unique opened crown fragrant floral display. Flowers in fall-winter are pollinator friendly.
American Witch Hazel has it all: great fall color, winter interest, a large vase shape, fragrant flowers, and fruit for the birds. New leaves emerge reddish-bronze in the spring, and turn a brilliant gold in the fall. Despite its stunning fall leaf color, Witch Hazel is best known for its fringed yellow flowers which appear in late fall and stay on the branches long after the leaves have dropped.
