Hazel catkins or lambs' tails
Hazel catkins or lambs' tails
These familiar yellow tassels are the male flowers that release their powdery pollen as they dance on the breeze, while the inconspicuous female flowers on the same twigs, wait for it to blow their way.
The association with lambs is not only visual, since the hazel flowers during the lambing season, and its pollarded shoots were traditionally used to make the hurdles that formed the lambing pens.
