|Design Ideas||Witch hazel is an exceptional large shrub for northern home sites. A perfect choice for breaking up long boundaries and fence lines. Makes unusual seasonal interest in out of the way walls of foundation planting. A real problem solver as understory beneath aged old shade trees. Naturally adapted to compositions of mixed woodlands of evergreens and deciduous forest trees. Let it go native in wild gardens among natives, grouped with other species from indigenous plant communities. Exceptionally valuable for transition zones separating cultivated landscapes from undisturbed wildlands.|
|Companion Plants||Forsythia (Forsythia); Snowberry (Symphoricarpos); Dogwood (Cornus); Oak Leaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Oregon Grape Holly (Mahonia)|
|Care||Provide moderately acidic, organically rich, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Apply a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Blooms heaviest on one- to three-year-old shoots.|
