Spider-like vibrant yellow-gold, fragrant flowers from late winter to early spring providing welcome interest through the winter. Soft green leaves follow, turning to rich shades of red, orange and yellow before dropping in the winter. Excellent year-round interest, hardy and suitable for sun/part shade in a sheltered spot. Hamamelis Barmstedt Gold was selected by Hans Hachmann from Barmstedt in Germany - thank you very much Hans! His passion was Rhododendrons, and his nursery lives on run now by his son Holger.
