Our Very Own Witch Hazel

We went to the Morris Arboretum plant sale today. It was the member's only day and it was packed! We got there a little after they opened and it was a nut house! We went there looking for a witch hazel, which is one of our favorite trees. The flowers bloom in the later winter and are generally very fragrant. We're not sure how well it will grow and how big because they can spread out quite a bit, but we love them so we wanted to give one a try. Here is the one we got, it has an orange ribbon because it is supposed to have orange blossoms. We can't wait to plant it and watch it grow! For some photos of witch hazel blossoms, check out my flickr photos.
