Hamamelis Virginiana 'Little Prospect' - 'Little Prospect' Witch-Hazel is a smaller, more showy, modernized cultivar of the shrub that's native to the United States. Just like the larger cultivar, the Little prospect will produce sweet smelling, dainty, ribbon-like yellow blooms all along the stems in the fall that last for several weeks. These blooms produce hard to come by nectar in the colder months when pollinators are preparing to overwinter. Once the flowers are spent and have been pollinated, these flowers develop into small seeds and fruit which are enjoyed by wildlife especially songbirds.
What is different however is that this cultivars gorgeous variegated green leaves will never scorch even in the summer heat! Not only will this beautiful specimen deliver a visual interest throughout the entire growing season but you will also help your environment, wildlife and pollinators with this important piece!
