Red Corkscrew Hazel (Corylus avellana 'Red Majestic') (aka Robert the Red Majestic but only by people who have an unusual relationship with their garden plants)

A recent introduction, the Red Corkscrew Hazel (Corylus avellana 'Red Majestic') differs from the standard Corkscrew Willow simply because it carries deeply ribbed red leaves and twisted branches. Its strangely contorted makes for a spectacular display along with the unusual Red Catkins in February followed by red nuts which you are unlikely to see because of thieving squirrels.

Many catalogues containing this Hazel tree state that "it gets people talking" but we didn't think that was a good thing if they were saying things like "stop whipping me with that Hazel Branch" and "who are you and why are you in my shower holding a red tree".

This is a small tree with a final height of around 4m (not accounting for shaky hands and sharp shears) and can be trellis trained (but not to fetch or chase the postman)

Our Red Corkscrew Willow trees are supplied at a height of between 1.3m to 2.0m and in a 5-15 Litre container, which means that the tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.

Expect the leaf colour to change from purple in the spring, red/green in the summer and darker purple in the the autumn.

Pruning Corylus Red Majestic
The perfect tree to pretend you know what you are doing when the neighbours are watching. You can hack away to your hearts content without fear of permanent damage. If you take it down to a few centimetres above grass level, we would suggest you are pushing your luck.

Twisted Branch Trees
If the twisted and contorted look is for you then look at Salix Golden Curls , Robinia Twisty Babe/Lace Lady , Corylus Contorta , Corylus Red Majestic or Robinia Tortuosa

Planting Corylus Red Majestic
Being chalk and clay tolerant, you can plant this hazel tree almost anywhere in well draining soil. Before we are challenged on this statement, we mean in the UK, in the 21st Century and no we have not taken into account alternative time lines, parallel Universes and unexpected orbital change towards the sun.

Fully UK hardy so you can live anywhere in the country and plant one of these.

Before planting, thoroughly water the tree in its pot. Dig a hole twice as wide and slightly deeper than the pot it came it. If you are using compost or well rotted manure, mix it 50:50 with the excavated soil. Remove the tree from its pot. Place enough of the excavated soil back in the hole to ensure the rootball top is in line with the surrounding soil. Fill the voids in layers, firming as you go. Carry out a rain dance and/or water well. If planting in the Summer and you are getting prolonged periods of strong sun, water every couple of days.

Corylus Red Majestic Is Good For...
Giving as a gift to anyone who asked for a Contorted Red Hazel Tree
Planting along pub crawl routes to aid your navigation back home (for the "pub regulars" we offer volume discounts)

See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Corylus Avellana 'Red Majestic'
Dear Trees Online, Sorry to have been so long in thanking you for your excellent service. The Red Corkscrew Hazel tree is wonderful. It now has red catkins on it!The tree was bought for a friend who had just suffered a spinal injury in a very serious car accident. We used my own contorted hazel branches for a 'Wishing Tree' and planted the 'new' red one by the side ( pictures attached). My friend is an artist and flower arranger so the 'red' contorted hazel will soon be used as much as my own is for wonderful arrangements. Amazingly, we now think that the trees have 'mystical' properties. The 'Wishing Tree' which was stuck in the pot 'temporarily' now has leaves and new buds and the 'new' red tree is growing strong and proud. My friends continued recovery has been nothing short of a miracle and we are sure that she will be back to enjoy the TWO trees in the summer. Everything about your service and quality of produce we found to be just as you said. Thank you for playing your part in our friends story. 0417

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.

UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.

Climate Change
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
