This is a ‘Contorted hazel – it’s Latin name Corylus avellana contorta ‘Red Majestic’
A variety of contorted hazel, with tortuously twisted stems and branches and beautiful deep burgundy red foliage. We have two flanking our tree display today.
Grow in full sun for the best colour – shade will cause the foliage to develop a green tinge. Fully hardy and really easy to grow. You can even prune to style the shape you like.
Truly living sculptures. Please feel free to come in and have a look!
