Filbert contorted bush

Contorted Filbert

Corylus avellana

"Harry Lauder's Walking Stick" Mature height 8-10' Curled and twisted irregular branching rivals other small bushes for its eye-catching ornamental appeal as a specimen plant. In late winter the golden catkins hang down among the gray gnarled branches of the filbert, making it a plant for all seasons. The catkins shed their pollen very late. Red Dragon contorted filbert is the best pollinator since it sheds its pollen very late too. These plants are on their own roots, so they do not sucker bothersome rootstock growth. Also called hazelnuts. Space 8' circle Zones 4-8Filbert Contorted In Snow
