This link shows Corylus avellana Contorta... twisted hazel.

 It has been grafted on to  Corylus avellana... common hazel.

It shows the suckers....(straight branches) which are from are the common hazel  and must always be removed.

Not familiar with Calycanthus floridus Michael Lindsey... could be tricky trying work our which it is.


Quote from above...


'Michael Lindsey' - Very fragrant red-brown flowers. Habit is dense,   compact and rounded (6' to 10' tall). Excellent shiny, dark green foliage and   golden yellow fall color. Considered the finest red-flowered form.

I am a regular poster on other forums but seem to be having trouble here getting links to work.

Normally good old copy and paste works... but not here.

Links are so very handy . saves folk searching themselves.

Any tips please would be appreciated.

Sorry posted answer above.. went to add a link and message lost.

Hi Addict,

I am 99.9% sure that the leaves in pic one match Clethra.

There are several sp.

If you Google "Clethra leaves" you will see what I mean.

I tried to add it as a link last time... and messed up!
