About Vernal Witch Hazel

In late winter or very early spring, before the leaves unfurl, Vernal witch hazel has yellow and orange-to-red flowers with a spicy fragrance that appears in late February and last three to four weeks. The new foliage is an attractive bronzy-red color that matures to dark green and then turns a rich butter yellow to golden yellow in fall. The dried leaves often persist into winter. The fruit capsules mature in September or October, when they split to expel black seeds that are attractive to birds. The plants can sucker to form colonies. This is a great specimen plant for naturalized landscape.

Witch hazel is very widely regarded as a medicinal plant, and one of its many powers is reducing swelling from insect bites.
