Corylus avellana Pendula
Corylus avellana 'Pendula' is a delightful form of Hazel, also known as the European Weeping Filbert. It has graceful weeping branches, creating a small, but dense, dome-shaped tree with long catkins produced in spring and dark green leaves which turn yellow in autumn.
This unusual and rare non-evergreen tree with stiffly weeping branches is best grown as a free standing specimen or for architectural interest within a large, mixed sunny or partially shaded border.
It is particularly eye catching when the central leader is trained up a tall cane or post to encourage it to grow as a slender weeping tree. Once this support is removed, the branches will cascade down and the tree will not grow much taller.
