Filbert Tree 'Purple Filbert'

Filbert Tree 'Purple Filbert'

Filbert Tree 'Purple Filbert' Code: NUT005

£20.95 20.9500 In Stock New

Corylus maxima 'Purpurea'

A very attractive filbert producing striking long red catkins, rich purple foliage and very tasty nuts with red husks and thin shells. Grown as much for its ornamental value as for its nut production.


Available for delivery: from late November/December 2019.


 

Cobnuts and filberts are both similar types of hazelnut. Easy to grow, they are both productive and ornamental and take up little room in the garden. The catkins provide some late winter cheer to the garden. Two varieties should be planted next to one another to ensure cross-pollination. The nuts are usually eaten ‘green’ in September when they are succulent with a delicate flavour. They can also be collected for winter storage and are delicious roasted. Cobnut and filbert bushes are available from late November to late April.

 

We are now taking orders for Autumn 2019 delivery.

 

For better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
