Deservedly one of the best Witch Hazels, Hamamelis x intermedia 'Jelena' is a vigorous deciduous shrub of vase-shaped habit with large, warm coppery orange flowers from late winter to early spring. Fragrant, each flower consists of 4 ribbon-like, crinkled, strap-shaped petals with a claret-red calyx. Clustered along the leafless branches, the flowers unfurl their spidery petals on mild days. But on cold days, they curl up again and nearly close up to prevent damage from freezing temperatures. The gracefully ascending branches sport broadly oval green leaves, which turn attractive shades of yellow, orange, and red in fall.

  • A full sun to part shade lover, this plant is best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Prefers organically rich, moist, acidic soils. Best flowering in full sun. Consistent moisture is best.
