Buy Hamamelis × intermedia 'Pallida' witch hazel: Beautiful sulphur-yellow flowers

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately-fertile, moist, well-drained neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Flowering period: December to February
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    In winter, this deciduous shrub has clusters of sweetly scented, sulphur-yellow flowers clinging to bare twigs. In autumn, the bright green leaves turn spectacular shades of yellow, orange and red. The tiered branches of this award-winning variety of witch hazel contrast well with the vertical stems of dogwood. It is a lovely specimen plant for a sunny winter border or woodland edge, where its fragrance can be appreciated. The flowering twigs can be cut to perfume rooms in winter.

  • Garden care: In early-spring remove any misplaced, crossing or diseased branches and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant.

Eventual height & spread

We have recently moved into a new build house. The front garden was already planted and we want to add a tree. I have always wanted a Hamamelis. The soil is heavy clay - although we are working to improve that. The aspect is south facing, sunny, but can be windy. Do you think a Hamamelis would survive here, and if so, which variety would be best? Thank you.

Hello there Hamamelis will happily grow in a sunny position with a clay soil, but unfortunately they are not recommended for a windy or exposed situation. Sorry to disappoint you, but I have attached a link below to shrubs that will grow in these conditions. https://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/shrubs/plcid.1/vid.190/vid.0/vid.187/vid.9/
