Product details

This Hazel is also known as Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick after the Scottish music hall performer who had a trademark “twisted” walking stick.

A very small and slow growing tree that has strangely twisted and contorted branches which create a dense and rounded habit.

It is believed to have been discovered in a Gloucestershire hedgerow in the 1860s.

A real curiosity for parks and gardens.

Small twiggy branches can be sympathetically removed and used add interest to seasonal floral displays.

Mature height: 3-5m

Mature spread: 2-4m
