Hamamelis Mollis Chinese Witch Hazel in Bloom

The deciduous witch hazel is finally blooming! Bloom will be long lasting and is more fragrant than its American cousin.  Witch hazel has no known pests and can be in a container or used as a specimen in your garden. It is truly one of the first shrubs to bloom and after the bloom a small dark black fruit will bear itself on the branches.
This tree/shrub can grow to twenty feet so you can tell this is just a baby and it is very slow growing.  Snow is covering the ground so much here in the Princeton area that we have seen no bulbs come up at all yet.
