ShipFall (End Of October) Spring 2024
Over 25 Feet
Sun Or Shade
Witch Hazel is a shrub or small tree native to the North American, European, and Asian continents. It can grow as tall as twenty-five feet high, but many gardeners prune them into a lower, shrub-like appearance. Others adore this shrub because it flowers late in the fall--when an unexpected pop of vibrant yellow color turns heads.
It's a relatively fast grower, with a rapid growth rate of two to three feet per growing season. When gardeners reach out to TN Nursery seeking advice on a low but dense shrub to define their property line, we often recommend witch hazel.
Witch Hazel Use in Your Garden
Witch hazel is a cold-hardy, drought-hardy, deer-resistant shrub. It grows well across most of the contiguous United States, regardless of soil type. When you plant it, find a partially sunny location and amend the soil with peat moss or mulch to give it the organic matter it needs. After you establish the plant, it requires little care other than occasional fertilizing.
Some gardeners let witch hazel grow to its full height, especially when they want privacy or to block an unsightly view. However, others will groom it into a long, low hedge around a home's foundation or in a formal garden setting.
Witch Hazel Is a Highly Attractive Shrub or Tree
Witch hazel has light brown, smooth bark that forms an intriguing zig-zag pattern. Leaves unfurl and bring a refreshing dose of green in the early springtime. Each leaf is small, approximately four inches long, oval-shaped, and has slight toothiness along the edges.
The greenery is lovely to behold all spring and summer. But the crowning glory occurs at the end of the season. In late fall, profuse amounts of four- to five-petalled, cheerful yellow flowers appear. Each petal is ribbon-like with an interesting, crinkled texture.
