Harvest Moon Witch Hazel

Harvest Moon witch hazel flowers in the late fall, around Thanksgiving and the harvest moon. Because the leaves have fallen the abundant yellow flowers can be clearly seen, making this a beautiful plant when little else is flowering. Witch hazel extract is used in cosmetics and skin care products.

This relatively large vase shaped shrub grows to a height of about 15-18 feet and about 10-12 feet wide. Leaves are initially reddish bronze then green changing to inconspicuous shades of yellow and brown in the fall. The flowers are small, fragrant strap shaped lemon-yellow petals that provide a showy display and persist through the winter months. Harvest Moon is tolerant of a range of shade conditions from full sun, to part shade to full shade, but will grow to a larger size with more light. It is also tolerant of moist, but not wet, soils.
