Chinese Witch Hazel Overview

Commonly known as Chinese Witch Hazel, this erect shrub has softly-hairy, mid-green leaves that turn yellow in autumn. It produces golden yellow, spider-shaped flowers in winter, which are strongly fragrant. Like many Witch Hazels, this makes a great specimen plant and also effective when planted as groups in shrub borders.
