Beaked Hazelnut
Goji Berry

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.

Goji Berry is a woody, deciduous perennial known for its hearty, bright orange-red berries. Goji Berry typically produces light lavender flowers from June through September, with fruit maturation taking place between August and October. Goji Berries are delicious, believed to be nutrient rich, high in antioxidants, and often called a super fruit.

Many describe their flavour as being like a tart cherry tomato.

Goji has a very unusual growth habit where it is somewhat like a vine, but also very much a tree. Many growers remark on its unusual and attractive qualities with the purple flowers and bright red berries contributing to its appeal.
