History of Hamamelis Aphrodite

The genus Hamamelis, of which the Aphrodite is a part, is native to North America and Asia. The name Hamamelis derives from Greek and it means “together with fruit” referring to its characteristic of blooming and fruiting at the same time.  The Aphrodite Hamamelis has been used in gardens and landscapes for several decades and is appreciated for its Winter blooming and Autumn foliage colour, as well as its hardiness and adaptability. It’s been used in the floral industry, as well as in herbal medicine, due to its astringent properties.
