- n. The typical genus of the natural order Hamamelideæ, founded by Linnæus in 1753, embracing 2 species of shrubs or small trees, and distinguished from related genera by the 4-parted flowers, deeply lobed calyx, blunt anthers, and deciduous leaves. One of the species is the wych-hazel of North America; the other is a native of Japan. The flowers are polygamous, the staminate (male) ones having elongated, linear petals, which expand in autumn after the leaves have fallen. The leaves are large, crenate, and unequal at the base. The fruit is a dry, woody capsule. See
