Hamamelis vernalis on Purdue campus

This is a row of Hamamelis vernalis along the north side of Stewart Center, showing the yellow flowers. This species flowers in the early spring. Picture taken March 25, 2009. You can find another couple of Hamamelis vernalis bushes on the west side of Stanley Coulter Hall.

This is not our native witch hazel that you find growing wild in Indiana woods. That is Hamamelis virginiana, and that flowers in the late fall.
