ABSTRACT
The article provides information about the witch hazel, or, the Hamamelis virginiana. Found from Nova Scotia south to Georgia, the woods-loving witch hazel is a 10-15 foot tall shrub that sports unusual yellow flowers in autumn. Spidery and fragrant, the yellow flowers are produced in clusters on the branches at the same time as its leaves are turning golden and gently floating to the forest floor.
