What is it?

While the kids were occupied on the playground, I wandered around the edge of the park and stumbled upon a shrub covered in these brilliant orange bursts. I can't remember seeing a plant like this in our area before and I'm curious what it is.  Any ideas?


  1. I don't know what it might be called, but it looks like something from under the sea. It's beautiful.

  2. Yep---It is Witch Hazel. Yellow is the more common color but fun for winter blooming shrub. MB
