This is a very odd shrub, its twig and branch growth pattern is unmatched anywhere. As you can tell from the picture it is truly living up to its name; it’s twisting all over the place.
The spot it should be planted in, is wherever the foot traffic is the greatest. Comments like, “look at that weird bush” or “what’s wrong with bush” and “I think that bush needs a drink” will be the conversations of the passersby.
That last comment will be spoken more often, it always looks like its heart shaped leaves are wilting. This does make it difficult to know when it is actually dry; but since it doesn’t require much moisture don’t give in to the concerns of your guests.
It does flower some sad little long yellow thing in the very early spring, but if you haven’t seen a flower out in the landscaping in six months, even something like this may spark an interest; but the twisting stems are its claim to fame.
