Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Diane’, also known as ‘Witch Hazel’ and a holder of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit is a deciduous shrub that is known for its beautiful, fragrant, deep-red flowers that bloom in late Winter to early Spring. The flowers are produced before the leaves appear, providing a colourful show in the garden during a time when other plants are still dormant. The flowers have a spidery appearance and have a strong, spicy fragrance. The leaves of ‘Diane’ are dark green, glossy, and turn orange-red in fall.

This cultivar can grow up to 4m tall and wide, but can also be pruned to maintain a smaller size. It is hardy and can withstand cold temperatures making it suitable for growing in a wide range of climates. It prefers full sun to partial shade and can grow in a variety of soil types, as long as it is well-drained.

Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Diane’ is an excellent choice for adding colour and fragrance to the garden during the winter months. Its deep-red flowers and glossy leaves make it a valuable addition to any garden. It can be grown as a specimen plant, in groups or as a hedge.

This shrub is also low-maintenance plant and does not require regular fertilisation or pruning to produce vibrant red flowers. However, cutting back the shrub after flowering will encourage new growth and promote a bushier shape.

In summary, Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Diane’ is a hardy and versatile shrub that offers winter interest in the garden. Its beautiful, fragrant deep-red flowers, glossy leaves, and vibrant Autumn foliage make it a valuable addition to any garden. Its low maintenance and ability to grow in a wide range of climates make it an easy to care for shrub. It’s particularly suitable for adding a pop of colour to the garden in Winter, and for those who prefer red flowers over the traditional yellow witch hazel flowers.
