    ....stick.. Tis called a "Harry Lauders Walking Stick", looks like a mess of chinese noodles, but looks really cool.

    Hopefully even I can keep it alive, since it apparently needs practically no care, and thrives in frozen tundra temperatures. :eusa_pray::eusa_pray:

    I love it.. I'm actually thinking about lining a 100' long fence with them.. They grow about 10' tall, and I think 4-6' wide..

    However, at almost $100 a pop, we'll see how the first one does for a season. :D

    the site doesnt do justice to henry lauder...he as a young comic who used a crooked walking stick.....he goes off to war to enterain the men...he is british if i am not mistaken.....i am doing this from old memory....he traveled the war zones bringing his act to men....he never returned...no one knows what became of him..but thru the contorted hazelnut tree...his name lives on and his memory....very nice choice of a tree there dis....but lining a 100 ft fence....pricey....i buy expensive shit from this garden center that guartnees their plants for 1 year....i have a nice japanese dogwood....

    i also do wisteria....long story but i am attempting to do bushes ....i have a nice red bud....red maple....things like that...but the tree you have is my "holy grail" so to speak....
