Description: ​​​​​The witch hazel can grow to be quite large for a shrub. They will often grow to 25' tall and spread to 15'. This may limit their use in the urban environment. This is too bad as they will tolerate the conditions found in the city. The witch hazel has long been used to make the witch hazel extract which is used by many for medicinal purposes.
These shrubs have great fall color and flower in the fall as well.
