Arnold Palmer Witch Hazel

Post  Fore on Tue Mar 13, 2012 3:54 pm

A neighbor has one of these in her front yard that is gorgeous with it's yellow flowers and great bark.

Has anyone used one for bonsai? I couldn't find hardly anything searching google so I'm thinking not. But why not if so?

Found it John, Thanks! Can you post a picture of yours when it leaves out? I'm curious about the leaves. Wonder if it'll respond to leaf reduction?

hi fore, believe it or not, this tree was hidden under a display table and covered with dried leaves. i saw some yellow peeking through the wooden slats, got curious and stripped the cover. obviously it was in full bloom and Wolf Trap Nursery here in Virginia wasn't ready to take it out for spring display. there were a couple i saw but the other had too straight of a trunk so i picked this one. ciao, philip

Very nice find Ebbtide! Isn't it weird how sometimes we find treasures in the strangest places. I just read a thread where this guy got this great Bald Cypress out of a trash heap lol

While they're certainly not a commonly used species, I've seen a few very nice specimens of Japanese Witch Hazel, called "mansaku" in Japan. I can't remember the year off hand, but one graced the cover of a Kokufu album in the last decade or so.
The leaves are rather large, but the ramification isn't coarse, its relatively fine in fact, so whoever told you that it could only be appreciated in flower was a shortsighted at best. The emerging leaves are attractive, so I see good potential in the species for full winter ramification display, flowering display, and early spring display. All deciduous leaves reduce to a certain extant, even given the large original size, from what I've seen of the Japanese wych hazel, I think it's quite underused.
