How do I care for my Corylus avellana 'Contorta'?
Posted by Suttons Staff on 16 July 2013 08:19 AM

A slow growing Corylus avellana 'Contorta' is a deciduous shrub, most spectacular in autumn and winter when you can fully appreciate its dramatic contorted stems. In late winter it will be draped with golden yellow catkins followed by spring foliage. 

The corkscrew hazel can be grown in full sun or partial shade in a well drained soil. Little pruning is required other than removing crossing branches and the removal of any suckers that develop.

Flowers February-March
Height 3m (10ft) spread 4m (13ft)
