Witch Hazel Flowers

Witch Hazel Growth

Witch Hazel Gelena

H. virginiana, or common witch hazel is found growing in its native form from Nova Scotia south to central Florida, and west to Minnesota in the north and Texas in the south. Vernal witch hazel, or Ozark witch hazel, is more Midwest in its range, which extends from Missouri and Arkansas southwest into the states of Oklahoma and Texas.

Many landscapers have turned their attention to the Chinese species (H. mollis) or the hybrid between the Chinese and Japanese species (H. x intermedia) for their great ornamental attributes such as durable summer foliage, beautiful fall color, pleasant fragrance and bright flowers in late winter to early spring. These plants are relatively care-free additions to Eastern landscapes, and deserve more attention and use.

In addition to its ornamental attributes, witch hazel has several medicinal properties including use as an astringent and an anti-inflammatory. Witch hazels are one of the very few American medicinal plants approved as an ingredient in non-prescription drugs by the US Government.

Varigated Boxwood We Grow

Varigated Boxwood

Is a striking boxwood that is most commonly used for an accent plant. Has rather small leaves that are splashed with yellow coloring. Slow to moderate growth rate and likes full sun to partial shade. Does best in slightly moist, cool soils that drain well - does not like clay soils, as the drainage is inadequate. May be kept at just about any size or shape through trimming / pruning. Makes an excellent accent when planted amongst larger plantings of solid green color, especially when planted against any type of darker solid colored backdrop. This boxwood is slightly more upright, with a columnar type growth habit than many boxwoods if left untrimmed.

The European Hornbeam reaches 60 feet tall and spreads 40 feet preferring well-drained soil. Cultivars are more common than the common species. The cultivar `Fastigiata' is most often offered by nurseries and is a popular street tree. The species tolerates a pH above 7.0. The hornbeam grows slowly, is shallow rooted, and it can branch low to the ground. The crown is finely branched, densely foliated and forms a beautiful oval or vase in the landscape. European hornbeam has yellow fall color and enough pruning tolerance to be a hedge, tall screen or topiary. It was and is the plant of choice for clipped screens and hedges in English and early style American gardens.

The most popular Laurels are probably the ‘Otto Luyken’ and ‘Schip’ laurels, both of which I use in my personal garden.

The taller species functions well as an evergreen screening hedge along roadways or to give privacy to your side or back yard.
