Information Only - A very rare, purple leaved form, Juglans regia 'Purpurea' is a splendid tree with rich-purple leaves which can be up to 70 - 90 cm long on an established plant. These leaves are wonderfully aromatic when crushed. The vivid purple leaves are eye-catching and make Juglans regia 'Purpurea' a much sought after, specimen garden tree!
