I'm from Germany and we use Hazelnut branches for decorations. They are corkscrew shaped and we hang them from our ceilings from silk ribbons and decorate them. We call them"haselnuss strauch". We could buy them fresh in the farmers market, sold like flowers in a vase. I have been looking for a picture on the internet similar to what I have described to you. I want to purchase a hazelnut shrub so that I can do the same.

The plant you've described is known commonly as Contorted Filbert, and botanically classified as Corylus avellana 'Contorta'. I can only find West Coast sources for the plant, but now that you know its true identity, you may be able to locate one locally. If not, contact T. H. Belcher Nursery, Inc. in Oregon at (503) 663-3593 or Teufel Nursery (800) 483-8335.
