Witchhazel (Hamamelis x intermedia) is a large deciduous shrub that can provide charisma for the winter garden with both its odd flowers and fragrance. Witchhazel is best situated in the back of the shrub border as it can attain heights of fifteen to twenty feet. A specimen plant could be limbed up into tree form and add unique interest to the front of a landscape. One inch long petals of strap like flowers (closely resembling those Loropetalum) appear in mid January and can last into March. This plant is versatile in exposure and can be located in sites with full sun to part shade.
