I've got a Twisted Hazel (sorry, don't know the correct latin name other than it contains the word Contortia) which has a few catkins on at the moment. More waiting to come out. I agree with the comment about the leaves. Mine are either really beautiful or look as if they're struggling to survive! Also I get a few Hazel Nuts each year but the squirrel usually gets to them before they have chance to ripen. :))
