Beaked Hazelnut vs Diablo Ninebark

Corylus cornuta

Physocarpus opulifolius Diablo


Beaked Hazelnut
Diablo Ninebark

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.

Diablo Ninebark is a small, low maintenance, multi-stemmed shrub, that is used to add texture or colour to any yard. This plant grows dark purple leaves in the spring and grows slightly faster than Common Ninebark. It features flaky red to brown bark, clusters of white flowers, and long, maple-like leaves. Diablo Ninebark can make a dense and colourful hedge, or it can be an attractive ornamental by itself.
