Witch Hazel, also known as “HAMAMELIS intermedia ‘Arnold Promise.'” Witch Hazel is one of the early risers. It will bloom in late February to early March in a mild winter. The flowers are fragrant and showy since it’s usually been a while since we’ve seen flowers outside. Witch Hazel is also very showy in the fall as well,  with foliage colors from yellows to oranges to reds.
