Fringe Flower, Chinese Witchhazel
Evergreen, Shrubs, Flowers
Native to China and Japan. Grows to 6–10 ft. high and wide. Neat, compact habit, with tiers of arching or drooping branches. Roundish, light green, soft-textured leaves 1–2 in. long; throughout the year, the occasional leaf turns yellow or red, providing a nice touch of color. White to greenish flowers, each with four narrow, twisted, inch-long petals, appear in clusters of four to eight at branch tips. Flowering is heaviest in spring, but some bloom is likely at any time.
Covered with pure white blooms in spring and sporadically through summer and fall; dense, glossy-green foliage with lime green new growth. Useful as a foundation shrub, in mass plantings, or in a perennial bed. From the Sunset Western Garden Collection.
