Hamamelis vernalis

Vernal Witchhazel

A native shrub of the Ozark Plateau, Hamamelis vernalis, commonly called Vernal Witch Hazel or Ozark Witch Hazel, is a deciduous flowering shrub known for its winter bloom period and delightful floral fragrance. From January to early March, spindly, delicate flowers adorn the branches, reminiscent of a summer sunset with their warm burgundy-red centers and twisted, orangey-yellow petals. The upright, vase-shaped habit and rounded form make Vernal Witch Hazel ideal for planting as an informal hedge, as an ornamental shrub along foundation plantings, as a component in erosion control, or wherever it is able to naturalize freely. The ability of Hamamelis vernalis to adapt to riparian areas as well as urban conditions, sites with poor soils, and disturbed zones allows it to be utilized in many types of landscapes.
