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

'Sunburst' witch hazel is another fine plant in this group of winter blooming shrubs. It produces masses of flower buds at each node, which open into spectacular large lemon yellow blooms with long petals.

If one can call it a drawback, the only failing might be the lack of scent on 'Sunburst'. The details above are erroneous, and one has but to put nose to flower to know this.

'Sunburst' is still among the best for floral display of the hybrid winter witch hazels.
