Follow the prepared scavenger hunt map to discover more than 70 varieties of colorful and fragrant witchhazels growing in the garden. Ranging in color from yellow and orange to pink and red, witchhazels are some of the first harbingers of spring, and the Arboretum's witchhazel collection is unparalleled in the area.
