Beaked Hazelnut vs Western Sand Cherry

Corylus cornuta

Prunus pumila var besseyi

Beaked Hazelnut
Western Sand Cherry

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.

Western Sand Cherry is known for its unique, leathery grey-green foliage and beautiful white blossoms. This makes it popular as an ornamental shrub in parks and front yards. However, both you and the wildlife will love its edible small dark red to purple cherries.

Due to its small stature and spreading qualities, Western Sandcherry is suitable as an underplanting or groundcover.

Many people graft plum and cherry varieties to Western Sand Cherry.
