Corylus americana

Commonly known as american hazelnut, is a versatile deciduous shrub native to North America. Recognized for its multi-stemmed growth habit, it features attractive, serrated leaves and inconspicuous flowers that give way to clusters of edible nuts. The American hazelnut is valued not only for its ecological role in providing wildlife with food but also for its adaptability to various soil types and its ability to thrive in sun or partial shade. With its compact form, it's an excellent choice for naturalizing landscapes, hedgerows, or garden borders, contributing both ornamental and functional qualities.
