Available Summer 2018 - Hamamelis x intermedia 'Spanish Spider' is an unusual witch hazel with unscented maroon-orange flowers with narrowly twisted and crimped, long petals. The individual petals are said to look like the legs of a spider, hence the catchy cultivar name.

The light green leaves turn shades of yellow before falling in autumn.
