Description

This is one of two species of hazelnut in Maine; they lead completely different lifestyles, which is convenient, because it gives us landscaping options. I’m a big advocate of matching the plant to your landscape, and not modifying the landscape to fit the plant (like cutting down trees). Beaked hazelnut grows in upland forested areas, in rounded multi-stem clumps. It seems to enjoy loamier soils when it can find them, but ekes out an existence in poorer acidic soils as well. Named for the conspicuous beak that forms on the husk of the nut. The nuts won’t last long, hungry forest animals will harvest the nuts well before they are even ripe.
12″-15″ plants in 2 gallon pots, $32 each
