Spring Witch Hazel is a medium-sized deciduous shrub that covers itself with fragrant blossoms even before all our winter snow has melted. Small yellow or reddish blossoms are unique and long-lasting, and are a welcome sight in late winter. In the summer, Witch Hazel fades into the background, sporting medium-green, oval leaves. Fall color is a beautiful gold, sometimes tinged with red or orange.
