Witch hazel is a subject to isolate or to plant in a small grove in groups of 3 or 5 subjects. Place them at the entrance to the garden, as a sign of welcome or in a place visible from the entrance to your house.
Covering itself in the heart of winter with strange, fragrant golden-yellow flowers, its early flowering brings a touch of light to the garden, which is precious at this time. The foliage, deciduous, has leaves 8 to 15 cm long, wide, serrated or lobed, green in color. They turn yellow in the fall.
Witch hazels bloom when winter days lengthen and temperatures turn positive.
