Witch Hazel

(Hamamelis virginiana)

It's Thanksgiving tomorrow, and there's a witch hazel still in bloom in St. Paul, MN. I didn't know how long they bloom here in zone 4, but usually by this date, everything has frozen, so I wouldn't expect to see this.

So, if witch hazel blooms in the cold fall, what pollinates it?
