Hamamelis virginiana (Witch Hazel)
Although common throughout much of the Mid-Atlantic Region, in Virginia’s Coastal Plain, Witch Hazel is infrequent but widespread. The last native shrub to bloom in autumn, its fragrant, spider-like flowers illuminate the landscape in pale yellow. Fruit matures the second season. The Virginia Native Plant Society named Witch Hazel as Wildflower of the Year in 2002.
