This Corkscrew Hazel was first found in 1863 in a Gloucestershire hedgerow, where a mutant was seen to have spiral, twisted, stems. This shrub is highly contorted with its branches bearing broad, ovate, green leaves. The pendant yellow male catkins appear before the leaves.

January to February flowering. Deciduous. Best in full sun in most garden soils. 3m x 3m (10' x 10').
