Yellow Witch Hazel

The Witch Hazel in the Sunset Flowerbed is in full bloom this weekend. I am afraid I hadn't noticed it, until I started weeding the bed. Then the yellow caught my eye. We did discover that this plant has sent up quite a few suckers over the years, growth from its root stock These branches were covered in small, red blooms. I took some clippers and cut off at ground level all of those branches. Hopefully that will direct the plant's energy to the yellow blooming cultivar.
