Hamamelis virginiana is a most remarkable plant native to north America. It is also known as common or American witch hazel. It is always in use as a true medicinal plant and it is a plant of great ornamental beauty. Hamamelis vernalis, or the Ozark Witch Hazel, is native to Central America. Hamamelis ovalis, or Leonard's Witch Hazel, was only found in 2004 and although an American native is new to science.

Thanks for the article. I just wrote an article for our paper and used a photo of my own H. virginiana which is blooming right now and the foliage is breath taking. What a lovely small tree for a shady yard! Mine is about 15 or more feet tall and 10 - 12 ft wide. The shape is so beautiful. I love it all year. Thanks again, The Rabid Gardener, Texas
