Arnold Promise Witchhazel

Hamamelis × intermedia 'Arnold Promise'

Interesting Flower Fall Colors

Characteristics:
'Jelena' is an upright cultived variety with ascending branches and a spreading habit. It is noted for its winter-blooming, sweetly fragrant, copper flowers (to 1" long), each having four narrow, ribbon-like, crinkly petals. Upon close inspection, however, the flower petals are actually multi-colored, having reddish bases, orange centers and yellow tips. Axillary clusters of these flowers bloom along the stems in February to March. Broad-oval, green leaves (to 6" long). Orange-red fall color is usually quite attractive. Synonymous with and formerly called H. x intermedia 'Copper Beauty'.

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best flowering is in full sun. Prefers moist, acidic, organically rich soils. Promptly remove root suckers to prevent colonial spread.
