Corylus avellana 'Red Majestic' is a purple-leaved form of ornamental or corkscrew hazel. A deciduous shrub or small tree, it has a semi-weeping form made up of twisted branches. It carries pinkish-purple catkins 4-6cm long in late winter before the deeply veined leaves emerge. In autumn it bears edible nuts. Grow Corylus avellana 'Red Majestic' in well-drained soil, preferably in full sun for best leaf colour. It does particularly well in chalky soil. This is suitable specimen to plant where there is plenty of room for it to develop into a small tree after 10-20 years, with a height and spread of between 2.5 and 4 metres. Its edible nuts make it a popular choice for a wildlife garden. Corylus avellana 'Red Majestic' needs little or no pruning but it may send up suckers from the base which should be removed.

How you will receive your plants: 

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a pot, ready to plant out. 

Can’t plant straight away? 

Place the pot in a sheltered spot outdoors and water regularly to keep the soil moist. 

Planting in the ground: 

Dig a hole slightly wider than the rootball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole so that it sits at the same level in the ground as it did in the pot. When backfilling, mix in a soil improver such as well-rotted farmyard manure. Firm the soil around the plant and water well. 

Planting in containers: 

Choose a pot with good drainage holes. Place stones or crocks (bits of broken pottery) at the bottom of the pot to stop the drainage holes clogging up. Use a good quality compost. Feed and water container-grown plants regularly.
