Washington Hawthorn
Andrew Hazelnut

Washington Hawthorn is an attractive ornamental shrub that is dense enough to plant as a privacy screen. It produces clusters of white blooms in late spring to early summer.

Washington Hawthorn's red berries last throughout winter, bringing squirrels and birds to your property. In the fall, its foliage turns beautiful orange, scarlet, or purple.

One of the most overlooked trees on the prairies. This tree is often used as rootstock, a wildlife attractor, or a boulevard hedge. Give this one a second look.

This species is also known as one of the more salt-tolerant species for those with saline soils.

Please note: this plant is poisonous to dogs.

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.
