Hamamelis virginiana (American witchhazel) is a great shrub that will add interest to your garden or landscape, especially if you reside on the north side of the hill, or have a very shady area on your property. This shrub does best in full to partial shade and would rather be planted in moist areas. At a time when we are all admiring the fall foliage on the east coast, this plant is blooming. It has lost its leaves, or is on it's way to loosing its leaves and has beautiful yellow flowers. This native plant is perfect for those of you looking for something else to spice up your landscaping as opposed to beautiful foliage or mums. These are some pictures of H. virginiana that I found growing in the woods.
