Product details

Hamamelis x intermedia Arnold Promise, commonly known as Witch Hazel, is a profusely yellow flowering clone that was raised at the Arnold Arboretum in the USA.

This small, shrub-like tree produces small, bright yellow, crinkly flowers with red centres in late winter, persisting sometimes for 4-8 weeks and into the spring.

It is a welcome reminder that spring is on its way and looks stunning in the frost, which does not cause too much damage to these pretty flowers. The foliage is mid-green and appears in spring, persisting until it turns to reds and oranges in the autumn time.

At Barcham, we grow Hamamelis x intermedia Arnold Promise as a multi-stemmed bush; this makes the most of this profuse flowering tree from the ground level upwards. 

Although it can withstand various soil types, witch hazel thrives in well-drained, light, and acidic soils. Its vibrant colours during winter make it an excellent choice for winter borders, especially when paired with other resilient winter plants like Dogwood and Himalayan Birch.

This specimen is extremely versatile, being perfect for small gardens right through to border planting on estates; this little beauty will brighten up any area in which it is planted!

Mature height: 3-5m
