This variety combines the charm of the corkscrew hazel and the quality of the foliage of the purple hazel.
With a height of about 2,00 to 2.50 m when fully grown, 'Red Majestic' has a good vegetation and similar characteristics as those of the Corylus avellana 'Contorta'.
The very purple colour of the foliage during the budding stage and the early spring fades during the summer to a greener shade, depending on the position.
The flowers as catkins, in March, are also purple; so is the husk of the fruit, more or less.
Pruning is not necessary.
