The leaves of Hamamelis virginiana are alternate, simple, and dark green during the growing season. They differ from Hamamelis vernalis in that they are thinner, subcordate to oblique at the base and have 5-7 veins. Differentiating between the two species by leaf can be challenging as the differences are subtle.
