Originating from the Atlantic coast of North America and East Asia, the plant charms in autumn and winter in its leafless cut with its small, yellow, curled-like flowers. The pleasantly scented petals are long and because the flowering time is here in winter, the fruits appear only in summer. The winter hardy witch hazel grows wild at the nature sites. Here it is a precious and slowly growing garden and park plant. The witch hazel can be pulled tree-like, is about 3-5 m. high, but grows wide and expansive. The leaves are similar to those of a hazelnut.
