Walking into work today, I noticed the very distinct smell of witchhazel, the lack of snow on the ground (finally) and I got excited about the upcoming time change with Spring right around the corner.  The Morris Arboretum has a number of witchhazel plants currently in bloom around the garden and it is a lot of fun to walk around the garden and see other flowers starting to sprout up as well.

I also read a great post on witchhazels at Morris Arboretum from Kelly at the "life out of doors" blog - check it out - it looks like she has a good following of fellow garden lovers.

Check out a few pictures of witchhazels from the garden:

  1. You guys do have an amazing collection of witch hazels! And all so conveniently labeled so I can go home and figure out where I can buy one for my garden. Thanks for providing blooms long before they show up most other places.
