Plant details

Like all hamamelis 'Vesna' is grown for its attractive flowers, which are produced in late winter and early spring, when most other plants are dormant. The flowers, which appear in clusters along the bare branches, are made up of long, thin, bright yellow petals with an orange centre. Hamamelis need an acid soil to thrive and their slow growth habit means they make excellent plants for containers. These can be moved to a prominent position when in flower and the moved elsewhere during the summer.
