Color in the Early Spring Garden
‘Arnold Promise’ witch-hazel is one of the last witch-hazels to bloom in the spring. I am enchanted by this plant- here blooming in the early spring when the daffodils are just beginning to appear but otherwise winter color lingers. Some varieties of witch-hazels bloom as early as late January and early February in the Midwest. Yellow goes in and out of fashion; some years I determine to eradicate it from my garden but lately I like seeing the color of the sun. A precious site in late winter in Ohio. Prune a few branches to bring indoors for the table.
