German term or phrase: Zaubernuss
The "Zaubernuss" is a kind of flower that might be blossoming in December even. So I need a translation or reference to a professional botanical source.

witch hazel
Explanation:
The following definition from my English dictionary corresponds to the German entry in my Duden: "any of a genus (Hamamelis) of small N. American and Asiatic trees and shrubs of the witch hazel family; esp., a tall shrub (Hamamelis virginiana) of E N. America, having yellow, wavy-petaled flowers in late autumn and woody fruit" . . . Webster's New World Dictionary, 2nd College Edition. The late autumn would correspond to having blooms in December.
