  • An easy-to-grow shrub that in summer produces hazelnuts that can be roasted and eaten, ground into flour or left for the birds and squirrels.  Makes a great screen or hedge and also grows well in open woodland areas where it can stretch out.  Fall color ranges from bright yellow to shades of orange, red and purple.
