Fantastic Winter Blossoms - Witch Hazel and More
The Winter Aconites at Wegerzyn Gardens, a Five Rivers Metro Park in Dayton. The Eranthis hyemalis blooms beneath the deciduous canopy where the sun reaches the ground. Winter Aconite creates a golden carpet, and has even been know to bloom above a snow cover.
The forty different Witch Hazel, a feature at this park, are beautiful.
Witch Hazel, Hamamelidaceae, is a deciduous shrub, or small tree which grows to about 15 feet tall.
