Description

A fantastic large shrub or eventually very small tree which has long, strongly fragrant, copper-yellow flowers in late winter / early spring. These flowers are similar in appearance to those of Hamamelis x intermedia 'Aphrodite' but differ in that they are a lighter shade of orange. The leaves are dark green in the summer and have excellent orange-yellow or red tints before falling in autumn.

Hamamelis x intermedia 'Aurora' is a vase-shaped, deciduous shrub or very small tree with flowers that give excellent late winter interest. Attractive leaves and  good autumn colour in October.
