Labrador Tea
Andrew Hazelnut

Labrador Tea is slow-growing evergreen shrub native to the boreal forests of Canada.

It thrives in wet, swampy conditions.

Labrador Tea has narrow, leathery, dark green leaves, topped by a cluster of white flowers in the spring. It is a perfect ornamental shrub for boggy, wet areas of your property.

Andrew Hazelnut is a northern cultivar that is grown specifically for its cold hardiness. Typically, hazelnuts produce smaller nuts in colder climates, but for Andrew Hazelnut, this is not the case.

This hybrid variety is incredibly productive, growing medium sized nuts that ripen in late August. Pair with another Andrew or Aldara Hazelnut for cross pollination to occur.

The edible nuts can be eaten fresh, used in baking, and will make a beautiful hedge. Andrew Hazelnut is also eastern filbert blight resistant.

Note: You want more than one hazelnut to improve yields.
