Red-Copper Winter Blooms + Blazing Fall Foliage
Why Common Witch Hazel Shrubs?
Also known as the Ozark Witch Hazel, this eye-catching shrub is native to the midwest, from southern Missouri through northwestern Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma.
It's one of the toughest spreading shrubs available, thriving in gravelly stream beds, rocky slopes along streams, and wooded hillsides. And since it doesn't have any serious pest or disease issues, it's virtually carefree.
Clusters of red-copper, ribbon-like blooms appear in mid to late winter before the emergence of the Witch Hazel's dazzling foliage. First, the leaves appear light green with reddish-bronze tints in spring, maturing to medium to dark green in summer. Finally, golden-yellow fall color takes hold with small fruit that releases its seeds the same season.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Dig a hole large enough to accommodate your shrub's root ball, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots.
Generally, the Witch Hazel prefers well-drained soil and full to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of sunlight). The Witch Hazel likes acidic soil but grows in clay soil, as long as it's moist but well-draining.
2. Watering: Let your soil dry to the touch down to about 2 inches in between waterings. Once your soil is dry, give your shrub a deep watering at the base.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize at the beginning of every spring with a well-balanced blend, and follow label instructions for best results.
4. Pruning: Remove suckers as they grow to prevent overspreading. Prune after blooming in spring to control your shrub's shape and size.
