Rhododendron 'Christmas Cheer' fully lives up to its name and one of the earliest, the bright rosy mauve Rhododendron praecox, looks terrific with the Hamamelis
virginiana, a North American tree and the source of the 'Witch Hazel' produced commercially as a healing astringent, is often used for this purpose.
The common witch hazel, Hamamelis
virginiana, is a naturalizing native performing similarly to vernalis, but it does it all in the fall.
Another focus of attention and an all-time favourite of mine is a Hamamelis
or Witch Hazel.
Witch-hazels, botanically Hamamelis
species, are plants of woodland edge, so they are at home in light shade, either as single plants or, in larger gardens, grouped along the edge of a shrubbery.
If the veins feel sore, take the remedy Hamamelis
6, three times a day for a week.
The earliest candidates are usually forsythia (try the gold charm and Lynwood gold varieties, which flower dramatically), witch hazel (try Hamamelis
mollis and Hamamelis
japonica) and pussy willows.
, commonly known as witch hazel, is a marvellous shrub that flowers mid to late winter offering some colour when there is nothing else around.
