Corylus 'Te-Terra Red'


Description: Medium-size tree with a straight, upright trunk and a wide ovoid, later often wide conical, crown. The trunk develops a rough, corky bark even at a young age. The deeply veined, purple leaves gradually turn dark-green as the summer progresses and in late summer, through to autumn there's a real blend of purple/dark green which moves together beautifully in the breeze. Red catkins are borne in late winter. The clusters of nuts in the autumn are also red-tinged and held in spiky, ornamental cases.

Corylus Growing Tips: Will grow well in most soils, preferring a moist, well-drained site. For the best foliage colour, plant in full sun.

Height and Spread (after 10 years): 4m x 3m.
