Hamamelis virginiana blooms later than any other native plant. It generally blooms October through December but on occasion can start to bloom as early as September. The flowers have the ability to roll back up if the weather gets too cold and unfurl again when the weather is more favorable. This protective adaptation is present in both species of Hamamelis.
