Witch Hazel

This large shrub has bright yellow flowers that bloom in the fall, usually from October through December. An entry in C.S. Mott’s diary says, “I find also on my desk a spray of leaves from the Hammelis, or Witch Hazel Tree, with its many small fruits looking something like small acorns. [Head Gardener] Mair says this will be in flower about Thanksgiving time.” –July 23, 1932

Location: East of the historic garage near the covered seating area.
