Corylus avellana 'Contorta'
Harry Lauder's Walkingstick

Aside from the propensity of Harry LauderÕs Walkingstick to sucker below the graft union, the foliage of this shrub is its greatest liability, as the puckered foliage of Summer gives way to the "fall color" that is unattractive at best. This deciduous shub with contorted branches achieves its greatest beauty throughout the Winter and into early Spring, when its catkins add a second feature of ornamental appeal.
