Chinese witch hazel is highly valued for its yellow flowers in late winter, rich green foliage through the summer and brilliant yellow color in autumn. A hybrid witch hazel, ‘Pallida’ becomes a vase shaped large shrub with a spreading habit and ascending branching. It will eventually reach a height of 9’-12’ and retain an attractive shape with pruning after flowering in spring. The highly fragrant sulphury yellow flowers with a reddish-purple blush at the base perfume the garden from January into March. The medium green leaves are oval-rounded to obovate in shape. It is a wonderful late winter-blooming shrub.
