Hamamelis, or Witch Hazel, is a compact, vigorous, bushy, deciduous shrub or small tree with ovate, green leaves, yellow and red in autumn. Attractive, fragrant, spidery flowers with ribbon-like petals can be yellow, orange, or red, and bloom mostly in winter and early spring on bare branches, before the leaves emerge. Flowers are followed by brown seed capsules that persist on the plant until spring. Witch Hazel grows best in organically rich, slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils. Tolerant of poor and heavy clay soils. It prefers full sun to partial shade. Too much shade reduces flowering. It is resistant to frost, but has to be sheltered from harsh winds. It is tolerant of coastal conditions and urban pollution. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require regular pruning. Hamamelis, with its striking flowers, brings colour and brightness to winter gardens. It is suitable for cottage, urban, coastal, and woodland gardens. Excellent for beds and borders, hedges and screens, and for growing in containers.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
