Corylus






CORYLUS AVELLANA PURPUREA.--Purple Hazel. This has large leaves of a

rich purple colour, resembling those of the purple Beech, and is a very

distinct plant for the shrubbery border. Should be cut down annually if

large leaves are desired.



C. COLURNA.--Constantinople Hazel. Turkey, 1665. This is the largest

and most ornamental of the family, and is mentioned here on account of

the showy catkins with which the tree is usually well supplied. When

thickly produced, as they usually are on established specimens, these

long catkins have a most effective and pleasing appearance, and tend to

render the tree one of the most distinct in cultivation. Under

favourable circumstances, such as when growing in a sweet and rather

rich brown loam, it attains to fully 60 feet in height, and of a neat

shape, from the branches being arranged horizontally, or nearly so.

Even in a young state the Constantinople Hazel is readily distinguished

from the common English species, by the softer and more angular leaves,

and by the whitish bark which comes off in long strips. The stipules,

too, form an unerring guide to its identity, they being long, linear,

and recurved.
