Spectacular winter form! Twisted, curled branches have pendulous catkins that are tinted red on this cultivar. Leaves are burgundy, slightly twisted, and hold their color well into the heat of the summer. The best part of this plant is that it is resistant to Eastern filbert blight which has killed so many Corylus in New England over the years.
