    During the spring leaves are dark purple but later leaves are green. Can you help me in identifying this type of hazel? Many thanks in advance.

    Hi Peto, I think purple filbert is what matches your quest. Sometimes called red filbert. Leaves start out purple and then turn to dark green under the summer heat. Look or ask in nurseries for a “Purpurea” filbert/hazel, that’s the variety I believe.

    Loving the season!
