FOR THOSE WHO LIKE FLOWER ARRANGING.

For all of you who like to do some flower arranging with things from your own garden : Corylus avellana contorta, the cork screw hazel.

Do not confuse it with the Salix babylonica tortuosa, the curly willow.

So I bought a cork screw hazel because of its beautiful curly branches  you can use all year round for your flower arrangements, they are beautiful in Spring with the long yellow catkins and all Winter long it looks like  you have a sculpture in your garden. If I need them in Summer I remove the leafs.

AND HERE

This tree is very winterhardy, even in zone 4( that is  down to 30 -40 ) F°in the US and you can plant it up to zone 8. Elsewhere it can take temperatures of -25 C° and even lower. It is happy in all sorts of soil, doesn’t mind sea wind and grows up to 3 to 5 meters (10-16 feet ) high and 3 to 5 meters ( 7-15 feet) wide, it is slow growing and you can keep it “small” by cutting off the branches regularly. It even gives you hazelnuts if you have another hazeltree nearby.

HERE YOU CAN SEE THE LONG YELLOW  MALE CATKINS AND THE FEMALE FLOWERS ARE THE TINY PINK DOTS .

For me this is a really good strong tree for my garden who gives me lots of branches I can use.

Have a great day and thanks for visiting.
