Hamamelis – Witch hazel

Hamamelis - Witch hazel

Hamamelis (Witch hazel) – probably ‘Jelena’ – a real garden treat with coppery orange flowers in early to mid-winter and orange to yellow and red autumn foliage. A plant grown as much for autumn colour as these frost-resistant, fragrant spider-shaped flowers. They are good specimen plants and are also effective when grown in groups in a shrub border or woodland garden. Flower colour varies from darker reds and marmalade colours, through to strong and paler lemon shades.
