Brighten Your Winter Garden with a Witch Hazel

Witch Hazel ‘Arnold’s Promise’
Hamamelis  x intermedia ‘Arnold’s Promise”

bright yellow flowers of a witch hazelWait no more for a pop of color in your winter garden.
The witch hazel ‘Arnold’s Promise’ bursts with blooms on bare branches. This only highlights the bright yellow, spidery flowers against the bark, especially on a gray winter day. Their color causes the deciduous, flowering shrub to be an accent piece at this time of year, even when placed among other shrubs or under taller trees in your yard.

Thriving in our slightly acidic soils when sited in full sun or part shade, the vase shaped witch hazel can take most soil types as long as it is well drained. Regular watering is preferred. Prune after flowering to maintain the natural vase shaped growth.
Easy care, slow but regular growth and the talk of the town during these late winter months – what more can be asked for?
