Corkscrew Hazel ‘Red Dragon’
10 in stock
The new Red Dragon Contorted Hazel has striking, deep red leaves that hold their leaf color better in the heat than other red-leaved varieties. The mid-sized leaves allow the contorted habit to be visible, even in the summer months. In late winter, pendulous catkins are borne along the twisting stems, adding interest to this already unique plant!
Corylus avellana 'Red Dragon'
Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil. This cultivar is usually sold in a grafted form, so root suckers should be promptly removed since they will not exhibit the characteristic contorted form.
