Positive ViburnumValley On Mar 16, 2008, ViburnumValley from Scott County, KY (Zone 5b) wrote:

'Wiero' witch hazel is another long-time performer in a park woodland landscape without much assistance. It seems to be a bit more compact than most of the other standard hybrid witch hazels. The main difference, though, is subtle in coloration.

Most of the prominent yellow-flowered hybrids have reddish to purplish calyces behind the petals, which provides a striking contrast. 'Wiero' has none of this coloration, having yellowish to greenish calyces, making the flower parts seem all as one color. Minor, but important to those interested in the details.

'Wiero' is also sweetly fragrant, but lightly so, for those who want to enjoy this bonus in their winter gardens.
