Description

This species becomes a many-branched large shrub or small tree with a rounded or oval form. The alternate leaves are broadly ovate with wavy margins, becoming bright yellow in fall. ‘Wisley Supreme’ was selected from a number of seedlings grown at the Royal Horticulture Society Garden at Wisley, for its larger than normal sized flowers, the reddish coloration at the base of the light yellow petals and sweet fragrance. This species, Hamamelis mollis, is native to China and is known for having the most fragrant of all of the witch hazel flowers. This cultivar is one of dozens of Hamamelis cultivars that have been under evaluation in the Lavin Plant Evaluation Garden.
