The American Witchhazel is one of the few deciduous woody plants that flowers after the leaves fall. It typically flowers during October to December. The extract of the leaves, twigs, and bark are commonly used in lotions and other skin products.
The fruit of the American Witchhazel is also very interesting. They resemble the hazel shrubs in the genus Corylus but are not very related as they are in different families. The capsules of the fruit can eject its seeds as far as 30 feet away.
