Description
Commonly known as the Purple Filbert, this hardy deciduous shrub gives plenty of seasonal interest. From February its golden yellow catkins drip from bare branches creating lovely silhouettes in winter borders. As the spring progresses the purple, heart-shaped foliage adds a splash of colour, and tubular husks form to surround the edible nuts. Corylus maxima 'Purpurea' makes a superb specimen plant for cottage garden, and woodland areas. Like all Hazelnuts with coloured foliage, this variety is most vibrant when grown in full sun. Height: 6m (20’). Spread: 5m (16’).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Hazel plants in any fertile, well drained soil in full sun or semi-shade. Varieties with coloured foliage will be at thjeir best when grown in full sun. Corylus tolerates alkaline soils well, making it useful in chalky areas.
More Info
Feed and water Hazel regularly until fully established. Once established Corylus requires little maintenance. Remove any crossing, damaged or misplaced stems in late winter or early spring to maintain a pleasing shape and open habit.
