Product information "Garnet Red Witch Hazel 'Feuerzauber'"

The garnet red witch hazel 'Feuerzauber' shows its deep red flowers with the typical, thread-like petals already in January. They spread a pleasant fragrance in the garden during sunny weather. In autumn, the leaves turn into an orange/red-coloured spectacle.
A red blaze of colour already in January

The wintry, snowy garden is pretty when the branches of the trees are loaded with snow, the shrubs carry a white hat of snow and the tracks of the varied garden visitors are visible on the lawn. But at times, all the white seems a bit melancholic, especially on dull winter days; it just lacks a bit of colour. We can help you with the garnet red witch hazel! From January to February, it is a wonderful winter bloomer in the garden that is sure to get admiring glances. As if by magic, a large, red spot of colour is drawn in the midst of the grey and white winter dress. The flowers consist of thread-like petals, which are brown-red in colour, however they become lighter and the flowers are almost orange. The individual flowers are delicate structures, but they appear so large that the conspicuous winter colour really looks very striking and impressive. Even down to -10°C, the flowers are not destroyed; as soon as the weather gets warmer, the fine flowers recover well and smell wonderfully again, as if nothing had happened. This witch hazel has developed a clever technique against the normal frost for the season: it simply turns the petals inwards during this time and protects them so that they can roll out immediately after the frost.
Slow growth and autumn colouration

After flowering, the green leaves develop, which are a little bit reminiscent of hazelnuts, however they do not really represent anything special. Admittedly, the summer is not the best time for Hamamelis intermedia 'Feuerzauber', as the plant seems a little boring. But not for long! In autumn, however, the plant turns into a magnificent sea of colours. The leaves change colour from yellow to red. Hamamelis intermedia 'Feuerzauber' grows slowly and broadly to about 3 m in height. This witch hazel grows about 2.5 m wide.
Keep your fingers away from hoes and clippers

The ideal location for this garnet red witch hazel is in a sunny or partially shaded location with loose substrate. Compactions, and the compactions often associated with waterlogging, are poisons for witch hazels. Since Hamamelis have flat-growing roots, hoeing in the root area should be avoided, as this would hurt the fine roots. Even pruning is not necessary since witch hazels grow slowly and have little branching. Every cut represents an intervention in the natural growth. It can also take a long time for larger wounds to heal. So, keep your fingers away from the clippers, unless you want to admire the wonderful flowers in your home. Then you can remove individual shoots before the flowers have opened and after a few days the branches will blossom in a vase. But always keep in mind not to cause any large wounds.
Combination in the garden

Due to the striking flowering, the garnet red witch hazel should be planted as a solitary plant or in a small groups. The combination with other witch hazels with different flowering times or other flower colours is particularly beautiful. It is therefore recommended to plant the witch hazel in a place in the garden that can be seen from inside the home. The bloom can also be observed from the terrace. In a large pot Hamamelis intermedia 'Feuerzauber' can easily be cultivated on a terrace or balcony.
