American Filbert

Corylus Americana

American Filbert (also known as American Hazelnut) is a thicket-forming native shrub, excellent for naturalizing, woodland gardens and shade areas.  Showy male flowers (catkins) add early spring interest,  dark green leaves turn a beautiful kaleidoscope of colors in the fall. The nuts mature from September to October, attracting seed-eating birds, such as blue jays and woodpeckers.
