Hamamelis (Witch-hazel)

Deciduous shrubs, valued for their rich autumn colour and frost-resistant, fragrant, spider-shaped flowers during winter. They make good specimen plants, but are also effective grown in groups in shrub borders or woodland gardens. Grow in moderately fertile, moist, but well drained, acid to neutral soil. We recommend adding composted bark when planting. Plant in sun or partial shade, in an open but not exposed position. Prune in Spring after flowering, removing wayward branches to maintain open framework
