witch hazel – hamamelis

27 Feb

witchhazel 005

One of the earliest bloomers in Spring, the blossoms on witch hazel are a little skimpy this year.  The first year I planted this bush, I had 4″ blossoms that looked like spider lilies.  Since then flowers have been the more normal 3/4″-1″.  It will leaf out later in Spring when everything else starts to green up.
