Purple Corkscrew Hazel | Corylus avellana 'Red Majestic'

The majestic purple Hazel

The Highlights

    • Exhibits purple foliage, catkins and fruit
    • Stems are contorted, producing a lovely architectural form
    • Purple-red leaves in spring, followed by green with a purple flush in summer, finally reaching bronzed-purple and green in the Autumn
    • In winter, purple-red catkins emerge on bare branches, followed by red nuts
    • Red nuts in winter attract wildlife, providing winter interest
    • Small in stature, grows no more than 4x4m
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE
