Also known as Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick, this contorted form of filbert provides year-round interest in the landscape. Twisted branches create drama in the fall and winter. In early spring, stems are draped with bright yellow catkins, announcing the change of seasons. Dark green, contorted leaves add whimsy to the summer outline. A great specimen, use near patios or other areas where one can appreciate the uniqueness of each aspect of this plant.
