Despite the cold, this hardy shrub reliably survives and flowers. Witch hazel, or hamamelis mollis, has a subtle scent that will remind you, if you are a certain age, of that hanky you were given to dab on a bruise! This species is both useful and beautiful. I’ve featured it here before, but I somehow don’t get tired of it…It's kind to share!
Witch hazel, or hamamelis mollis is one of the lovely shrubs that flower in winter. This one is in my dad’s garden; the flowers have a characteristic sweet scent. A very cheering sight on a dull winter day, and actually quite easy to grow.It's kind to share!
