Plant of the Month: Ozark Witch Hazel, Silverdale Glen


Recommended Posts

According to manxwildflowers.com there is a specimen of Ozark Witch Hazel in Silverdale Glen.  It's a large shrub or small tree, not native to the island so presumably brought in and planted at some point, it should be in flower right now and the flowers are very unusual and distinctive and look like the picture below.

I was in Silverdale Glen today and I couldn't see it anywhere.  Has anyone come across it (particularly those of you who live Down South)?  I'd like to photograph it for my book on Medicinal Plants.

I know of one of those in a private garden towards the Abbeylands end of Ballanard Road that looks incredible at this time of year. But not at Silverdale sorry.

Edit - actually it might be a Japanese one thinking about it.
