Introducing Corylopsis glabrescens Fragrant Winterhazel, a delightful spreading shrub that will enhance any garden with its stunning features. This multi-stemmed deciduous shrub typically grows between 8-15' tall and showcases clusters of fragrant pale yellow flowers that gracefully droop in late winter to early spring, before the foliage emerges. It is a native of Japan and closely related to the beloved witch hazel.

With its pale yellow and beguilingly scented flowers, this shrub will astound and captivate your senses. The fragrant winter hazel thrives in both full sun and part shade, making it adaptable to various garden conditions. Its leaves, which are dark green during the summer, transform into a stunning display of gold or yellow-green in the fall.

When it comes to soil, this shrub prefers acidic, organically rich, and well-drained soils with medium moisture content. While it can tolerate average garden soils, it does not fare well in heavy clays that have not been amended. It is important to note that the flower buds are susceptible to damage from early spring frosts, so caution is advised in regions prone to frost.

Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the fragrant winter hazel offers a habitat for native wildlife, adds a touch of elegance to borders, and creates a mesmerizing massing or grouping effect in your garden. Its slow growth rate and medium texture contribute to its overall charm.

If you're searching for a shrub that adds a touch of early beauty to your garden, the fragrant winter hazel is the perfect choice. Its large, greenish-brown buds, alternate leaf arrangement, and cordate leaf base make it easy to identify. Additionally, it can be propagated through both seed and cuttings.

Whether you choose to plant it for its stunning flowers, delicate fragrance, or as an attractive border, the fragrant winter hazel is sure to be a valuable addition to your outdoor space. Cherish its beauty year after year and watch as it thrives in your garden, bringing joy to all who encounter it.
