It started out simply. Admiration in a late winter garden.
I’ve planted them for my clients for years, but have never had one of my own.
Then I wrote a piece for the upcoming issue of Leaf. Then I became obsessed. I have to have one–I am bewitched!
Hardy in zones 5-8, Hamamelis hybrids have a rich range of color, fantastic fall foliage, and are generally a medium to large, broadly vase shaped shrub.
The bonuses are the super early bloom time…late January to mid-March in my zone 6 part of New Jersey as well as their deer resistance.
As I said. I want one. I really, really, want one.
