Chinese Witch Hazel… Spectacular Firework-Like Flowers, Striking All-Year-Round Foliage, Easy To Grow And Winter Hardy!

A plant for all seasons and all gardens, the Chinese Witch Hazel really is one of the most spectacular plants you can own. Quite a rarity in UK gardens, it is unlikely that your neighbours will have one, so you can be one of the first to grow it! Incredibly exotic looking, this highly prized beauty is actually very hardy and easy to grow.

Its glorious, rich burgundy, oval-shaped leaves contrast superbly against any green foliage and act as a dramatic backdrop to its spectacular, vibrant pink flowers. Often likened to sea coral, the highly unusual ribbon-shaped petals explode from the centre just like a firework and completely smother the plant from February to April, just when you need interest in your garden.

As spectacular in a pot on your patio as in any border, Chinese Witch Hazel requires nothing more than an occasional trim to keep it in perfect shape.

Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot, ready to plant out. Ultimate height approx. 75cm (2.5ft). Flowers from February to April; it may have a second, minor reflowering from September to October.

Product Information

A real gem of a shrub, for glorious golden-yellow cheerfulness in your garden – and being evergreen, it keeps its lovely foliage colour all year round.

A low-maintenance, drought-resistant and slow-growing hardy shrub, ‘Sundance’ forms a dome of glossy, bright yellow-green foliage and in spring produces small clusters of white, star-shaped flowers that have a delightful citrus-like fragrance – hence its common name of ‘Mexican Orange Blossom’.

Use it as a specimen plant on its own or in the middle or back of a mixed border where it will contrast with darker foliage of other hardy perennials. It is an ideal choice for complementing shades of lavender and blue. Alternatively, place it in a container on your patio, where it will form an attractive rounded clump of golden leaves.

Fully deserving of its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as an established plant in a 15cm pot ready for planting out or potting up, you can expect your Choisya ‘Sundance’ to grow to 1.5 x 1.5m in 10 years.
