This Witch Hazel stopped me right in my tracks this morning! Up against a blue spruce, the orange almost glows. Witch Hazels are a favorite around here for a shade-loving shrub (I think it's safe to say that it's my mom's #1 favorite). The get rather large if left to their own devices, but they don't grow fast enough to get out of hand, making a nice shrub to train to a specific size. They come in all sorts of varieties, and boast a spectrum of fall color (reds, yellow, orange, and a mix)!
