Description
Curious twisted branches give the Corkscrew Hazel a most distinctive appearance. Yellow catkins dangle elegantly from the bare stems in February before the contorted small green leaves unfurl. With its crooked stems, this deciduous shrub makes a superb feature for winter borders, woodland areas, and oriental planting schemes. The twisted stems are much loved by florists too. Corylus avellana 'Contorta' is hardy and easy to grow, earning it an RHS Award of Garden Merit. Height and spread: 5m (16’).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Hazel plants in any fertile, well drained soil in full sun or semi-shade. Varieties with coloured foliage will be at thjeir best when grown in full sun. Corylus tolerates alkaline soils well, making it useful in chalky areas.
More Info
Feed and water Hazel regularly until fully established. Once established Corylus requires little maintenance; however the twisted stems of Corylus avellana 'Contorta' can be cut back to just a few buds from the base of the plant, to promote fresh contorted stems for the following season. Alternatively, simply remove any crossing, damaged or misplaced stems in late winter or early spring to maintain a pleasing shape and open habit.
