Witch hazel

Hamamelis

Add a brilliant splash of color to your autumn landscape with witch hazels. These shrubs feature fantastic fall color in shades of gold, orange, and red. Better yet, they bloom -- usually when other plants are done. Chinese witch hazel blooms in winter; vernal witch hazel blooms in early spring, and common witch hazel blooms in late autumn. The fragrant flowers appear in shades of red, orange, and yellow, and have a spidery appearance.

All witch hazels do best in a spot that gets full sun or part shade and moist, well-drained soil rich in organic matter.
