Syn. = Hamamelis x intermedia 'Copper Beauty'
Garden hybrid between H. japonica and H. mollis. 'Jelena' named for the wife of Robert de Belder of Arboretum Kalmthout, Belgium, whose family raised many Hamamelis cultivars. Distribution: H. japonica comes from Japan, H. mollis from China. The bark and leaves are the source of witch hazel for bruises, haemorrhoids, varicose veins, and other skin conditions, although commercially H. virginiana is the usual source. It is produced by stem distillation of the twigs.
