(Dwarf Witch Hazel) A rare dwarf shrub, Hamamelis vernalis 'Quasimodo' is compact and densely branching once established with masses of small orange-yellow flowers in late winter. The leaves are dark green with yellow and orange autumn tints.

Hamamelis vernalis 'Quasimodo' is slow growing and not for instant gratification. Due to its small size, it is suitable for gardens with limited space or for growing in large containers.


  • Position: Full sun or light, dappled shade.
  • Soil: Well drained, fertile soil. Hamamelis vernalis 'Quasimodo' dislikes shallow, chalk soil and will not grow well in wet or waterlogged conditions.
  • Hardiness: Reasonably hardy. As a young plant, Hamamelis vernalis 'Quasimodo' may require protection from severe, late spring frosts once the young leaves have emerged in spring.
  • Flowering Period: January - March.
  • Flower Colour: Orange-yellow
  • Rate of Growth: Slow.
  • Habit: Hamamelis vernalis 'Quasimodo'  grows to be a small rounded, branching shrub.
    • Height:  1 - 1.2 m (3 - 4 ft).
    • Spread: 1 - 1.2 m (3 - 4 ft).
  • Notes: In soils which may become wet in winter, it is a good idea to mound-plant Hamamelis to improve the drainage around the root system.
