Acer Corallinum and Corylus Red Majestic

29th May, 2013

Two fine plants;

Acer palmatum Corallinum is a stunning spring drama queen, beautiful, showy, yet hard to please and highly temperamental if not given all she requires, namely a sheltered position.

Corylus Red Majestic is the purple leaved form of the contorted hazel and so easy as to put the Acer above to shame.....while not having the three week hit of "Drama in Pink" it offers good all year interest and is a plant with balls....sorry, nuts.
