Hamamelis × intermedia ‘Diane’
Diane witch hazel
Witch hazels are renowned for producing flowers just when we need them most: winter. 'Diane' produces incredible dark copper red flowers in mid- and late winter, providing quite a show against its bare branches. In autumn, the foliage turns from medium green to bright yellow and scarlet.
Colors & Combos
Great Color Contrasts: bronze, chartreuse, blue
Great Color Partners: dark green, silver
Culture NotesWitchhazels thrive in rich well-drained soil, but will tolerate sand and clay if drainage is adequate. Provide a location with full sun to light or open shade. Regular water during dry weather will encourage the best flowering, but well established plants can tolerate occasional watering. Minimal pruning is needed to maintain its graceful vase-like form. Beginner pruners should consult an experienced pruner or take local classes before attempting to prune.
