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.

The Frank Hazelnut produces nuts that are medium size and ripen mid August. This is one of the best eating hazelnuts for cold climates. It is a medium size deciduous tree from Saskatchewan, Canada. It is a productive tree that has been tested as both a pollinizer and a main crop cultivar for colder climates. The Frank Hazelnut is one of the cold hardiest hazelnut trees on the market and known to be resistant to eastern filbert blight.

Not all hazelnuts pollinate with each other so it is important to pick the correct pollination pairs. Two compatible varieties of hazelnut are required to produce nuts. Nuts will only be produced once maturity is reached, around 2-3 years.
