Hamamelis virginiana – Common Witch Hazel


One 5-gallon pot curbside at McKay Nursery in Oregon, WI.

Plant height: 15′-20′

Out of stock


Unusual yellow flowers with ribbon-shaped petals appear on the stem late in the fall and stay on the shrub into the early winter. Bright yellow leaves also contribute to fall interest. Branches are picturesquely crooked and uneven, forming a large rounded shrub. Tolerant of road salt and Black Walnut. Full sun to shade, but heavy shade will inhibit flowering.
