Yamhill 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.

The Yamhill Hazelnut is a tasty, relatively cold hardy hazelnut that is a popular European variety.

It is known to be a strong grower and has moderate eastern filbert blight resistance. It is a suitable pollinizer for the York Hazelnut.

Introduced by Oregon State University, The Yamhill Hazelnut is used by Ferror Roche for their candy and chocolate spread desserts.

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.
