Beaked Hazelnut vs Russian Almond

Corylus cornuta

Prunus tenella

Beaked Hazelnut
Russian Almond

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.

Russian Almond is a low, suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets that wildlife will flock to for food and cover. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.
