A sensational and popular witch hazel with lovely, scented sulphur yellow flowers that are borne in abundance in late winter and early spring. The leaves also have good yellow, orange and red autumn colour. This is a lovely specimen plant which is ideal for adding interest to a sunny winter border where its fragrance can be appreciated. Flowering twigs can be cut to perfume rooms in winter.

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

One of the favourite cultivars of Chris Lane, (photo above middle) amongst his National Collection of Hamamelis in Kent.   For further reading, we recommend Chris Lane's monograph, "Witch Hazels",  published by Timber Press for the Royal Horticultural Society.
