Corylus Maxima Purpurea Filbert Hedging

The Purple Filbert Hazel or Cobnut, Corylus maxima Purpurea, is a variety of Filbert Hazel with superbly rich purple leaves. This ornamental tree is also a very productive cropper and its big, tasty nuts have a pretty, wine-purple tinge inside them. It is very hardy and suitable for any soil, although it is not quite as good in the shade as ordinary Filberts.
It is a good hedging plant, but we would recommend Common hazel (if you want nuts) or Copper Beech (if you want purple leaves) instead for this purpose: both are cheaper than Purple Hazel, which is much better as a specimen tree, with long pink catkins in early spring that attract hungry bees, followed by dark plum-purple foliage that turns into a jumble of different colours in autumn. It can reach about 8 metres if it grows freely as a tree.

Purple Hazel plants are delivered bareroot during winter (Nov-March) and pot-grown year round. Bareroot Purple Hazel trees are cheaper than pot grown plants. Pot grown Purple Hazel is available in the largest sizes. All our sapling trees are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots or pots aren't measured).
