Beaked Hazelnut

Corylus cornuta

Native Pollinator

Flowering from mid-winter to early spring, Beaked Hazelnut has attractive drooping catkins that add winter interest before plants leaf out in the spring. The green roundish leaves turn a soft yellow in fall, and the shrub produces nuts that are a favorite of wildlife. The ascending branches form a roundish to vase-shaped multi-stem shrub that has a fibrous root system. Valuable for stabilizing soil, it is a fast-growing plant once established.
