Shrubs - Hamamelis

Hamamelis

Winter beauty and autumn elegance

The spider-like flowers of Hamamelis (Witch Hazel) look delicate and frail but for six or eight weeks from late December through to mid-February they are perhaps the toughest of all winter flowering shrubs. The thin, strap-like petals form a profusion of flowers clumped along the stems. Many varieties have a sweet scent and the majority are also noted for their autumn colour with leaves turning yellow, gold or orange during October and November.

Tough, winter flowering, scented and with good autumn colour, what more could you ask for in a shrub? Hamamelis; Care & Cultivation Guide.
