Betulaceae. ‘Purpurea’ is a large deciduous shrub or small tree to 6m, with broad, deep purple leaves to 12cm in length. Pendulous pale yellow catkins on leafless twigs in late winter are followed by edible nuts concealed by a tubular husk. Unusually for an ornamental variety, the edible nuts (filberts) are produced in good quantities.
