Ah, luck you to have Witch Hazel! Is this the normal time of year for it to bloom here in S. Wisconsin? I noticed it's blooming at the Arb, too. I don't have a Witch Hazel tree, so I'm always excited to see it profiled on other people's blogs. :)


I planted a witch hazel this fall so I am really excited to see how mine might look in a few years!! So pretty!

​Beth — This is the normal time for that Witch Hazel to bloom. My other one (H. vernalis) blooms in March. They are both understory trees in my garden, growing beneath a Silver Maple. Since they bloom when one is not typically out in the garden, I sited mine to be seen from the window over the kitchen sink so I could enjoy them. ​

Liz — It takes a little while for them to develop but worth the wait. They don't seem to have disease or pest problems which is an added benefit.

As luck would have it my witch hazel bloomed much earlier. I think it was blooming for dear life in our drought. It still has a few blooms. I just love this plant with the spidery blooms.


My son and I went camping in Shenandoah Ntl. Park years ago. While out hiking we came upon an area thick with this shrub in full bloom against an impossibly blue sky.

BTW, I enjoyed your Korean Maple post. What stunning color.

Les — I don't think I've ever seen anything but single Witch Hazels in bloom. They would make a real statement in a group. The Korean maples really have fantastic color and are so much hardier that I've given up on Japanese maples, especially since most of the ones I've planted have died in short order.
