Design Ideas: Witch hazel is an exceptional large native shrub for northern home sites. A perfect choice for breaking up long boundaries and fence lines. Makes unusual seasonal interest in out of the way walls of foundation planting. A real problem solver as understory beneath aged old shade trees. Naturally adapted to compositions of mixed woodlands of evergreens and deciduous forest trees. Let it go native in wild gardens among natives, grouped with other species from indigenous plant communities. Exceptionally valuable for transition zones separating cultivated landscapes from undisturbed wildlands.

Provide moderately acidic, organically rich, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Apply a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Blooms heaviest on one- to three-year-old shoots.

History

The American witch hazels were so named because they were used as dowsing rods by colonials who could not obtain the wood of their English hazel in the New World for that purpose. All species contain high tannin content and have been a part of the cosmetic industry as an old fashioned astringent known as witch hazel. Native Americans used it in dozens of remedies and as a valuable coagulant.
