Beaked Hazelnut vs Western Sandcherry

Corylus cornuta

Prunus pumila

Beaked Hazelnut
Western Sandcherry

Beaked Hazelnut is a multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub native to North America.

It features smooth, grey bark and edible nuts. Beaked Hazelnut prefers a rich sandy-clay loam but will grow on poorer sites, and can be used as an understory shrub.

Sandcherry is known for its unique, leathery grey-green - or recessive dark red - foliage and beautiful white blossoms. You and the wildlife will both love its small dark red to purple cherries.

Due to its small stature and spreading qualities, Sandcherry is suitable as an underplanting or groundcover. Sandcherry is also a great pollinizer for plums or Nanking Cherry.
