Including Corylopsis pauciflora
Buttercup Winter Hazel
This choice delicate shrub will grace a woodland garden with the scent and sight of primrose yellow blooms on 3 in. racemes. The bristle-toothed leaves, which cluster densely on gently arching branches, are smaller than others in the genus. Long lasting as a cut flower, Buttercup Winter Hazel is irresistible with an understory of early flowering blue Brunnera.
Size: 5' 0" high x 8' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.
Corylopsis pauciflora (S-0028)

Golden Winter Hazel
Though Winter Hazel's dangling chains of primrose yellow flowers are always a much anticipated, late winter delicacy, this new artful cultivar offers an additional radiant bonus. Lovely butterscotch colors bathe the rounded deciduous foliage, which emerges with red and orange tints, matures quickly to canary yellow and dons saffron and pumpkin shades for fall. All this lambent splendor embellishes layered, zig-zagging and gracefully arching branches. Favored by hummingbirds and bees, ‘Aurea’ can be situated in a shady open setting, where it sheds light on deep green companion shrubs and perennial shade aficionados such as Omphalodes, Corydalis or ferns.
Size: 6' 0" high x 6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.
Corylopsis spicata ‘Aurea’ (S-0800)

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!
Celebrated headliners of the late show!
Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
