Rare selection of witch hazel with masses of vivid, ruby red flowers in late winter or early spring. These flowers are slightly scented and look fantastic after a hard frost or fall of snow, as they stand out exceptionally well against the white background. The leaves turn shades of yellow sometimes flushed with orange in autumn before falling.

Hamamelis x  intermedia 'Rubin' 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.
