Check out Medusa - the crazy Contorted Hazel - This very easy to grow hardy shrub has intriguing twisted corkscrew stems resembling a nest of rising snakes - hence the name Medusa!

Corylus avellana contorta "Medusa" is a fantastic and unusual looking shrub that carries charming golden-yellow catkins on contorted stems, and it is these that form the main attraction of this deciduous woody plant. The entwined and twisted trunks provide an lovely architectural feature where ever this is planted.

Known as the corkscrew hazel, it is ideal for planting towards the middle of a sunny garden border or in a large container. The twisted stems, much-valued by flower-arrangers, provide a curious and unusual focal point.

This plant is really something to get people talking! Fresh green foliage through out the year, turning golden yellow in autumn before it falls. The bare twisted stems look particularly stunning in winter when covered in ice and frost. Something both architectural and unusual. Medusa is a new form with particularly contorted stems and more compact growth than some varieties, which lends itself well to all gardens.

Supplied in approx 3 litre containers.
