I can not remember the name of this! D'Oh! I have only grown it in a container - it's hard to get a good pic of this, sorry.
Most of the small leaves are already falling.

Maybe Corokia cotoneaster.

My initial thought is... Harry Lauder's Walking Stick (Corylus avellana 'Contorta')

But I can't get a good look/feel for the leaves... pic's kinda fuzzy.

I don't think the leaves look like a corylus. The cotoneaster looks much more like it to me.

Corylus avellana contorta ..twisted hazel...Harry Lauders walking stick is very different.

Whilst the Corokia leaves are very sparse and tiny..almost like tiny spoons in shape.
