Hamamelis x intermedia

Walking through the nurseries today selecting trees for a garden we are creating at the moment when I stumbled upon this little beauty flowering on its bare stems. Most of the trees I needed are in bud at present, but not in leaf and definitely theres rare, if any oportunity to see flower. Next time your buying plants spare a thought for the witch hazel and put one in your garden.

In a [plant] world gone mad it made my day even brighter than it always is !

not x intermedia but wonderful and beautiful nonetheless 😉

    Witch Hazels seem to be more popular these days – or at least they are commonly pictured on blogs. I love the flowers and am going to figure out if I can add one to my garden. It will depend on their hardiness.

    The tricky thing is finding the spot where you get the best of the flowers and scent while it’s doing its thing – and at the same time don’t spend the rest of the year wondering if you should move it because it’s not doing very much.

    I keep thinking I’ll put one in a really big pot and just wheel it out for the winter, which seems like the best answer for a small garden.
