Hamamelis virginiana

Common name: Common Witchhazel

Native plant

The yellow flowers of the plant bloom the latest (September-December) of all the shrubs. Blooms usually continue after the leaves fall. Common in high dune country and on level ground in rich woods, Hamamelis virginiana needs a fine, moist, well-drained soil. It is usually found under trees or along the edge of the woods. The extract witch hazel is derived from the bark and roots. In the fall, the seed capsules snap and eject the seed 5-20 feet!
