Quick Overview:

Broad margins of lemon yellow pattern the green leaves of this relatively compact, densely branched Witch Hazel, adding a long season of interest to the garden or shrub border. The leaves on this pyramidal shrub won’t scorch even in summer heat. Yellow flowers arrive in fall, carrying a light scent.
