Crazy Filbert

Crazy Filbert (also known as Contorted Filbert and Corkscrew Hazelnut) is an annual shrub with twisted branches, making it a truly unique plant!

Reaching heights of 2-3 metres, this unusual plant boasts light green, serrated leaves which turn yellow through autumn. Once the leaves fall you are left with the main feature of this plant – it’s beautiful bare, contorted branches. To add to its beauty, the bare branches develop yellow hanging catkins which take this plant’s uniqueness to a whole new level.
