Plants of the Day

Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Pallida’ (witch-hazel) is one of the most popular and widely planted of the hybrid witch-hazels. The many flowers are acid-yellow in colour, with red-purple calyces. The leaves of Hamamelis resemble Corylus (hazel), being oval in shape, with deep veins and this cultivar provides good yellow autumn colour. Notice how the branches of this plant reach out over the fence to offer their scented flowers to the visitors on the path.
