Bewitched… Hamamelis at Kew


A grove of Witch Hazel, Hamamelis, at Kew – like those at RHS Wisley, in profuse bloom – these specimens are obviously in full sun rather than a woodland setting – they form part of the Mediterranean Garden displays, a setting for King William’s Temple, and they seem to be liking it! Smaller plants than the counterparts on Battleston Hill, which may be a factor of their location, or they might simply be younger plants. Beautiful and striking, deserving of close inspection and also making a bold, colourful statement.
