Corylus avellana 'Contorta'
Harry Lauder's Walkingstick

Harry LauderÕs Walkingstick, slow to mature to specimen size, is an investment in the landscape that looks its best in late Winter and early Spring when it is in bloom. Two forms exist - a low graft (as shown here), and a standard graft (usually between 1.5 feet to 4 feet in height). In either case, annual pruning of vigorous, straight-stem, rootstock suckers is likely needed to maintain the uniformly contorted nature of the branching.
