Hamamelis mollis Oliv. - Hamamelidaceae - Chinese witch-hazel, Chinesische Zaubernuss

Deciduous shrub or small tree, up to 8m tall, native to China, cultivated as ornamental. It is one of the two parents of the popular garden hybrid H. × intermedia (the other parent is H. japonica), which has many different cultivars.

The flowers (yellow with a red base) appear in winter (Europe, January) or spring (China, March to April) on the bare stem. They emit a sweet scent, especially in the evening.
