Comments: This cultivar of the witch hazel is somewhat smaller than some of the other cultivars. It produces burnt-orange flowers in late winter through very early spring and blooms at a time when few other shrubs are in flowers. It is well adapted to the woodland garden where soils contain a generous amount of humus. It can tolerate full sunlight in the upper South but also does well in partial shade. Outstanding autumn color can be an added feature of this witch hazel
