HAMAMELIS

Medium-size to large shrubs, sometimes treelike, usually with spreading habit and angular or zigzag branches. Valued for bright fall foliage and nodding clusters of interesting yellow to red blooms that typically appear in winter. Flowers consist of many narrow, crumpled petals and are said to resemble shredded coconut, mop heads, or spiders.

Hamamelis x intermedia

Group of winter-blooming hybrids between Hamamelis mollis and Hamamelis japonica. Big shrubs (12–15 ft. high and wide). Often grafted; remove any growth originating from below the graft. Flowers come in late winter or early spring; have classic, powerful, fresh witch hazel fragrance.
