Think Spring with Witchhazel 'Arnold Promise'

It's that time of year...with so much springtime anticipation that you will start to notice the striking witchhazels in full bloom! The bright lacey yellow flowers help to make this shrub often mistaken for forsythia, but don't be confused, witchhazel flowers appear much earlier in the season. We like 'Arnold Promise' because this cultivar consistently blooms yellow and usually begins its winter show some time in February. Give witchhazel ample room as they can grow 10-12'; tall with a similar spread. Best flower occurs in bright sun but they will still perform in a semi-shady situation. Golden yellow fall foliage color can add a second season of interest.
