American Hazelnut or “Filbert” is an easy to grow native shrub that produces edible nuts in late summer. Able to thrive in a wide range of conditions, Corylus americana makes an excellent shrub for the hedgerow or windbreak. Its deep green leaves turn to copper reds and yellows in autumn. The American Hazelnut is a unisex species, with separate male and female parts on the same branch, so a second tree is Not required for nut production. It can be pruned at any time of year.

Highly attractive to wildlife, the nuts are are eaten by squirrels, foxes, deer, northern bobwhite, ruffed grouse, turkey, woodpeckers and pheasants. The leaves, twigs, and catkins are browsed by rabbits and deer. The male catkins are a winter food for turkey and ruffed grouse. The dense, low growth habit provides cover and nesting sites for birds and other wildlife. An excellent pollen source for bees in early spring, it also hosts numerous lepidoptera/caterpillars including Polyphemus and Io moths. http://bit.ly/2l90B55
