Positive ViburnumValley On Mar 15, 2008, ViburnumValley from Scott County, KY (Zone 5b) wrote:

'Luna' witch hazel has performed well in a woodland setting for the past ten years. It has smaller yellow flowers than many of the popular selections currently available. These are attractively kinked and twisted, and are borne throughout the plant.

It has a light sweet fragrance and commendable yellow to orange fall color.
