Elegant evergreen shrub with a layered, fan like arching structure, related to Witch Hazel. Dark blue green leaves are very handsome on this relatively slow grower which may reach 6-7’ in many years. Dark red stamens add color to gray late winter days. Prefers rich acidic soil with organic matter, sun to part shade and some summer water. Choice and rare shrub form China.

Info

A relative of Witch Hazels, this rare Chinese Shrub with glossy narrow, dark blue-green leaves with lateral branching that create a layered effect. The flowers, similar to Parrotia, have clusters of red stamens with no petals and line every stem beautifully followed by black fruit in Fall. A lovely and unique plant but slow growing, 4-8" per year. Because it's slow growing, many sources list the height after 8 years (an industry standard for shrub height) but it will get taller than the 4' often reported. Protection from strong winds is a good idea. (Oddly enough, ours in 2007, must have been really happy because they were definitely medium growers, not slow.)
