Witch Hazel

Ozark witch hazel grows in gravelly valleys and along rocky streams in the eastern and southern Ozark plateau. Small flowers emerge in late January and February and are easily overlooked. Extract from the bark and leaves is astringent and is used in medicines and lotions. - Jim Rathert.
