Corylus americana, commonly called American Filbert or Hazelnut, is a North American native shrub. Monoecious (separate male and female flowers on the same plant). In spring, male flowers appear in showy, 2-3" long, yellow-brown catkins and female flowers are inconspicuous. Female flowers give way to 1/2", edible nuts which are covered in interesting looking husk-like, leafy, ragged-edged bracts. Nuts may be eaten, but are often left for wildlife to enjoy. Variable fall color, sometimes develops shades of red, orange, purple to yellow-green. Selected by Roy G. Klehm. Grow Corylus SundropsTM in shrub borders or as a focal point.
