The World of Witch-Hazels: An Arboretum Tour


Wednesday, February 6, 2019, 2:30pm to 4:00pm


125 Arborway, Hunnewell Building, Boston

In the Arnold Arboretum there is a tree or shrub in bloom every month of the year--including February! This winter phenomenon is only possible because of the witch-hazel family. From witch-hazel to fothergilla to parrotia, the family includes some of the most botanically fascinating and horticulturally valuable plants for the temperate garden. Join Andrew Gapinski, Head of Horticulture at the Arnold Arboretum, for a very special mid-winter walk to explore the beauty of the Arboretum's witch-hazel family collection, and its captivating history of development, evaluation, and scientific study here at the Arboretum. Snow or shine, the witch-hazels will certainly be in full bloom!
