Corylus avellana Contorta

Corylus avellana ‘Contorta,’ commonly known as Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick or Contorted Hazel, is a unique and visually striking deciduous shrub. Its most distinctive feature is its contorted and twisted branches, giving it a twisted, gnarled appearance. The leaves are typically heart-shaped and dark green, providing an attractive backdrop to the contorted branches. In late winter and early spring, it produces inconspicuous, yellowish catkins that add subtle interest to its overall aesthetic. ‘Contorta’ is prized as an ornamental shrub, adding a touch of whimsy and intrigue to garden landscapes. It is also commonly used in decorative floral arrangements due to its captivating branch structure.
