Spike winter hazel (Corylopsis spicata)

Spike winter hazel: Forsythia's bold gold makes a statement for sure, and maybe it's my nature to relate good things back to food, but when I seek out yellow, I look for pale, buttery hues the likes of winter hazel (Corylopsis spicata, Zones 5-8). It blooms March to April here in Zone 6, around the same time as forsythia, and prefers light shade to part shade and average garden soil.Winter hazel grows at an amiable pace (4-8 ft. tall, 8-10 ft. wide), a better maintenance choice for designers in search of shrubs that don't need to be fended off with a whip and a chair. (Ahem, forsythia.) Its broad leaves are texturally interesting, but try fabulous cultivar 'Golden Spring', whose foliage emerges reddish, and quickly turns to a luminous chartreuse that lasts throughout the growing season.
