Vernal witch-hazel blooms in late winter or early spring, before the leaves unfold, with yellow and orange-red flowers with a spicy smell that last three to four weeks. The young leaf is bronzy-red in hue and develops to a dark green tint. In the fall, it changes colour from a rich buttery yellow to a golden yellow. The dried leaves can last far into the winter. In September or October, the fruit capsules develop and crack open, releasing black seeds that attract birds. The plants may establish colonies by sucking each other. For a naturalised landscape, this is an excellent specimen plant.
