Hi Guy's, Once more i am Back to Annoy your Heads, but i got this Shrub/Plant/ Flower, a couple of Week's ago from a Friend, and they do not know what it is, or do i. As a Matter of Fact their are Two Different Plants Growing in the Same Pot ( See Pics). Hoping some of your Good Selves may Identify what they are. Many Thanks.

1. Looks like Hypericum sp. To the left looks like Corylus avellana contorta...common name twisted hazel.

2. Looks like a gift from the birds...a weedy Salix or willow

No.
Look carefully at the veins of a sweet chesnut leaf...very different.

Buds typical of weedy willow.

Just a word of warning.

Twisted hazel are often grafted onto common hazel.
So you need to be vigilant for straight growing branches from below soil level...these are suckers of plain Corylus avellana.
They will grow quicker than the twisted branches of the C A contorta.
Remove them asap!
See pic...

It can be a rather boring shrub in summer ...with ill looking leaves.
The beauty comes in the yellow catkins on bare twisted twigs in winter.

In order to get lots of catkins grow in a sunny spot!

I have to ask. Did the label not give you the name Summer?

Not a problem!

It is actually Silver surfer.

When spelling is hard...just copy and paste!
