I think the video explains it better than text ever could the coryllus avellana ‘Contorta’ or commonly known Corkscrew hazel and the maintenance steps I need to take to bring it back to its glory days for the coming season.
For those who might like to know, I thought these the most helpful of definitions:
Reversion: 3. Genetics A return to the normal phenotype, usually by a second mutation
Reversion: n 1 return to an earlier condition, practice, or belief 2. Biol the return of individuals or organs to a more primitive condition or type
In all of the gardens I have ever owned  I have always had one of these plants. I don’t entirely know why. Part of me always wondered if it knew it were an oddball alone in the plant world and/ or just what it was thinking when it began returning to normal.
More than that I always loved how when everything else was going to sleep for the winter like some sort of Cinderella, this fellow took the stage and became so amazingly beautiful – only for it to return to contorted just as everything else was waking up.
How the plant kingdom will never cease to amaze me and why I love it so much.
