Comments: The sulphur-yellow can be quite striking on this deciduous plant in late winter. Witch hazel flowers borne in tight clusters are quite fragrant and last a long time because of the cold temperatures where this plant normally grows. This is an excellent woodland plant that can be massed or used as an individual specimen plant. Autumn color as noted in the images above can be a truly outstanding feature of this witch hazel. Provide a well drained, slightly acid soil and partial sunlight to full sunlight. Plants growing in heavy shade do not flower well and may become quite leggy in appearance.
