Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick, Corylus avellana ‘Contorta’, is noted for its contorted, twisted growth, making it a real conversation piece when grown as a specimen plant.
This unique deciduous shrub has interesting gnarled and twisted branches so it is often not grown primarily for its blooms but for this unusual branching pattern. Twisting and curving into ornamental and curious contortions, this plant has four seasons of whimsical interest!
Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick has terrific yellow fall foliage color with showy greenish-yellow catkins (just like found on Pussy Willows) that brighten the winter scene.
