American Hazelnut, commonly known as filberts or hazelnuts, is a native shrub
that produces a tasty, edible nut that is relished by bluejays,
bobwhites, grouse, pheasants and turkeys. It forms a rounded
shrub with dark-green foliage that turns yellow in the fall.
The 1/2-inch nuts are produced in clusters and enclosed in
a covering that opens as they ripen. Useful for the shrub
border or naturalistic plantings. Hazelnuts tolerate full sun to
partial shade and a wide range of soil types, except very
wet conditions. Easy to grow. Winter hardy to Zone 4.

What's a "bareroot" plant?
is a term that describes how a plant is shipped to you. A
bareroot plant is not in a pot, and is usually dormant (not
actively growing). See the photo to the right that shows what
a bareroot rose looks like. The bareroot plants that we ship
to you were harvested in the fall and placed in cold storage
over the winter to keep them dormant. In the spring, we ship
the bareroot plants to our customers, from early April through
Bareroot plants are easy to grow. We include planting instructions
with your order. When you receive your plant, take it out
of the packing material and place it in a bucket of water
so that the roots are completely covered. Let the roots soak
for 4 to 24 hours, then plant it in your garden. Full planting
instructions with photos are available on our planting
