Burgundy Lace European Filbert

Corylus avellana 'Burgundy Lace' PP #28,216

Bronze-green foliage emerges wine red from dark burgundy buds, with dissected, serrated margins and a heavily veined and textured surface, giving it a beautiful lacy appearance. This sensational small ornamental tree is prized for its stunning foliage and upright, spreading habit; the burgundy catkins produce little pollen. Deciduous.
