I had almost given up on seeing flowers of a decent size and color on my Witch Hazel, Diane. I was drawn to this particular Witch Hazel when I saw it on one of Paul James’ episodes of Gardening by the Yard on HGTV. I spent a lot of time researching this plant to make sure that it was hardy for my central Ohio zone 5b garden, and according to USDA plant guidelines it is. I just had to have it. Each year, around this time, I would go out in the yard and hope that I would see something spectacular. Well, this time, I was surprised in a good way. Check it out! You may want to have this plant in your garden too.
Hamamelis x intermedia Diane
This plant is hardy in zones 5-8. The fall leaf color is red, orange and yellow. I'll need to post a picture of the leaves in the fall. For now, I will just enjoy the wonderful colors of Diane!
