Hamamelis x intermedia Birgit

Witch Hazel Birgit

The witch hazel with perhaps the deepest red flowers, Hamamelis x intermedia Birgit is a large, deciduous shrub with a spreading, vase-shaped habit, later becoming more rounded. The oval leaves are mid- to deep green, and colour well in autumn. In January and February, large, spidery, deep purplish-crimson flowers are borne on the bare branches; these have an elusive, spicy fragrance. Witch hazel Birgit is easy to grow, and does not really need pruning, although it may flower better if you do; any suckers are best removed, however. Ideal planted near a path so that you can appreciate the winter fragrance.
