This fine broadleaf evergreen shrub with dark green foliage is suitable for use in a privacy screen. But when the long male catkins (tassels) develop in the cold of winter, you will realize it is also an incredibly showy plant. Garrya x issquahensis 'Glasnevin Wine' is a cross between G. elliptica and G. fremontii found in Glasnevin, Ireland. As a result of that cross, the six-inch male catkins are banded wine and green in a striking pattern down their lengths. In addition to the catkins, the leaf-stems are wine-colored. Once established, these astonishing shrubs require very little water. As a bonus, they are deer-resistant.
