Michael Buffin writes that this is one of his top five favorite witch hazels. In pictures some of the short straight petals are yellow and others are red, giving it a fireworks effect.

Another excellent red to orange-red witch hazel. The unique feature of this cutivar are its stiff, spoke-like petals. The blossoms look like minature fireworks!
