Corylus avellana Red Majestic - Bare Root Tree

  • Catalogue Code 1150-1115
  • Pack Contents: 1x Bare Root Tree
  • Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit
  • With rare twisted framework of branches
  • Attractive winter catkins and edible nuts in autumn 

Add twisted red hazel tree Corylus avellana Red Majestic for a punchy permanent structure in your garden in a rare twisted form. Rich red leaves appear in spring after putting on a show of long catkins in winter and edible hazlenuts as summer turns into autumn.

The twisted framework of the tree is reflected in the roots which grow in a gnarled manner underground; this keeps the tree restricted in height and proportional to a typical garden or allotment patch. With something to give every season red Majestic gives you catkins, lovely burnt copper leaves, hazlenuts and even handsome bare stems in winter that provide an attractive silhouette in the low winter sun.

Your Corylus avellana Purple Majestic arrives as a bare-root plant tree in time for you to put in the ground on arrival from autumn to spring. If you need to wait a few days before planting keep your bare-root plant in a shady position and bury the roots in some loose soil.
