Hamamelis × intermedia 'Jelena
'Jelena' produces large, copper-orange flowers in early and mid-winter on otherwise bare branches. In autumn, the foliage turns from medium green to rich orange and red.
Well-drained soil; will tolerate sand and clay if drainage is adequate; full sun to light or open shade. Regular water during dry weather will encourage the best flowering, though well- established plants can tolerate more occasional watering.
Will require some pruning to maintain tree form; natural tendency is toward becoming a multi-stemmed shrub
