I like whimsical plants. One of my favorites is The Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick. It is actually a hazelnut that went crazy. During the growing season it has leaves that hide the twisted branches but during winter it’s full whimsy is revealed. Growing very slow it makes a great container plant.
Monica and I actually used one as our Christmas tree last year, and will again this year. It’s different, like us, and the ornaments are visible from all sides. It always gets comments from our visitors.
If your looking for something different as a gift, or Christmas Tree, you might find The Walking Stick right up your alley.
