October portraits of
Hamamelis virginiana


Witch Hazel

Although the autumn colors of the American Witchhazel
(Hamamelis virginiana) are not as extreme as for the Asian hybrids,
there is nevertheless something to be said for the bright yellows
of the American species.


These two photos from October (2004) show it at
the height of its autumn brightness, the yellows fringed
with rust-red. The leaves will soon enough fall to the ground,
& the small bright yellow strap-flowers will begin to develop.


A year later it reached its height of color in September (2005).
