RIP Harry Lauder's Walking Stick

I finally lost my Harry Lauder's Walking StickCorylus avellana 'Contorta'.   I mail ordered it from Heronswood Nursery back in Oct 2001(still have the tag). I grew it in a container until we moved to this house. I think it's been in the ground for about 2 years. Last year it didn't put out it's leaves until May. This year it's dead :-(  I guess it really does prefer the Pacific Northwest with their rain and moist soil.   I haven't dug it out yet because the curly branches are so beautiful.  I will definitely save the branches after I yank it.   Sad.
