Product Details

Product Details

Broad margins of lemon yellow pattern the green leaves of this relatively compact, densely branched Hamamelis (Witch Hazel) 'Little Prospect,' adding a long season of interest to the garden or shrub border. The leaves on this pyramidal shrub won’t scorch even in summer heat. Yellow flowers arrive in fall, carrying a light scent.

This genus consists of five species of upright, spreading shrubs or small trees native to North America and East Asia, an interesting disjunct distribution also seen in other plant groups. The spring-blooming Witch Hazels provide the first big display of color, beginning in late February or early March and continuing for six weeks or more depending on the season (the flower petals sensibly curl up if the temperatures plummet). Our Common Witch Hazel (H. virginiana) is a fall-blooming species, sometimes producing its fragrant yellow flowers into early December. Plants thrive in average, well-drained soil.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Gorgeous plant, great quality

It took probably 6 weeks after planting to leaf out, but we had a cool spring. This shrub is gorgeous! I’m so pleased with it. The leaves look beautiful with sun filtering through them. The bare root plant arrived in great condition with lots of branches. All of the branches now have leaves on them. Would recommend!

Beautiful specimen received

As usual, White Flower Farm sent me an exceptional plant. The description says it will be 20-24" tall bareroot, but I received a bushy 3 ft plant, in perfect condition with a large root mass and heavily budded ready for planting. I am eager to see this plant flourish in my garden.

Latin Name Pronunciation: ham-uh-mel'is 

When everything else is drab and dreary in late winter, Witch Hazels light up the woodland garden with their lacy blooms that look like crepe paper. These vigorous shrubs have great architecture for all-season interest, and the flowers are often delightfully fragrant. Many cutivars offer vibrant fall color in shades of yellow, red, and orange.

Light/Watering: Grow in full sun to light shade in moist, well-drained soil.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Most are pH adaptable, but prefer acidic to neutral soil.

Pests/Diseases: Generally untroubled by insects or disease, but occasionally powdery mildew can be a problem.

Companions: Underplant with Hellebores and spring flowering bulbs. Excellent combined with an evergreen ground cover such as Lily Turf (Liriope).
