One of the newer additions to the arboretum, this woody plant showcases ribbon-like flower clusters when in full bloom. An early flowering shrub, the Ozark Witch Hazel’s most distinctive feature is its bright orange clustered flowers which bloom in the winter. Native to Missouri, it is adaptive to nature and consequently its flowers curl in on colder days, and unfurl on warmer days. Because it is so naturally resilient to the elements, it is commonly planted for not only decorative purposes, but as a border shrub placed around homes and gardens.
