Witch Hazel 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. How to Use Witch Hazel 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.

You see them along ditch banks, on the south- or west-facing edges of woods, along light or utility lines, or in open fields.

When you plant your elderberry shrub, find a spot with the appropriate sunlight and recreate the woody material the species enjoys in the woods. Add a good handful of hardwood mulch, peat moss, compost, or leaf litter--it craves these woody materials. A young elderberry tree requires about one inch of water each week. After strengthening and growing a little bit, your elderberry tree will become relatively carefree. It will demand nothing of you except water during an extended drought. The Rustic Good Looks of the Elderberry Shrub Elderberry shrubs are shrub-like and rounded in shape. They grow as high as twelve feet tall and might grow as wide. Opposing, bright green compound leaves grow in clusters of seven to eleven leaflets. They are oval-shaped with a narrow tip, light to bright green, and up to six inches long.

The Old-Fashioned Snowball Creates an Amazing Floral Display The Chinese snowball might put on one of the loveliest floral displays you would ever lay eyes on. The shrub is multi-stemmed and forms a unique vase shape with a narrow bottom and an expansive canopy. When not blooming, the leaves are full, oval, abundant, and about four inches long. Their color is a rich green. The flowers have an apple green center covered in a multitude of petite (under an inch) pristine white florets to form a ball shape--or better yet, a snowball.
