A lovely witch hazel

I'd thought that the glorious winter flowering witch hazel in front of our mountain house was a Chinese witch hazel, until reading my garden blogging friend Janet's post about Hamamelis vernalis (hmm, maybe it was on FB?).  I couldn't find the reference for a link -- but thanks, Janet, for pointing me in the right direction!

It was looking lovely last weekend, complete with flowers. It certainly seems to be  H. vernalis!


  1. It is a beauty! Think there was a conversation between me and Gail and Randy on FB about Hamamelis vernalis.

  2. I knew I'd read something about it! Thanks, LW

  3. All we do is talk about spring here. All this snow cover has to be good protection though, so I'm happy.


I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
