Common Witchhazel - #3

Hamamelis virginiana

This trouble free native straddles the line between tree and shrub but there is never any doubt of the outstanding characteristics it brings to the landscape. Aggressive growing, it quickly becomes a substantial landscape presence bringing substantial beauty to each season. Spring sees its large, bluish-green foliage emerge with a bronze tinge. Foliage darkens through the summer months hiding branches and providing thick covered protection for numerous bird species. As colder weather approaches, leaves turn a bright yellow providing a tremendous fall foliage show. After the foliage has left in late October, this plant blooms with its spidery yellow, strap-like petals complete with a spicy scent that enlivens the autumn landscape with the last flower of any ornamental of the season. Distinct gray bark adds winter interest to this American Beauties classic plant that grows in full sun or partial shade.
