A real conversation piece. This unusual and resilient deciduous shrub has the most amazing twisted stems and branches earning it the common name corkscrew hazel. In summer the branches bear a tangle of broadly ovate green leaves followed later by nuts. In late winter and early spring a mass of weeping yellow catkins unfurl. A slow growing shrub, it will reach around 1.8-2m after ten years. A great architectural plant and an ideal choice for creating a wildlife garden attracting moths, butterflies and a variety of insects as well as birds and squirrels. This curious variety has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. Bare rooted plant supplied approximately 40-50cm in height
