American Hazelnut/Filbert

Wild Snowberry is a mix of Common Snowberry and Western Snowberry. Each shrub's size, flower, and berry colour may vary.

This plant is abundant across the prairies. It can be planted alone or as a hedge in small yards. This shrub's ornamental berries persist into winter. Wild Snowberry can be a natural habitat and food source for various animals.

American Hazelnut is a cold hardy, disease resistant, and long-lived nut tree. It is a great choice for a shrub border for wide, open spaces where it will be allowed to spread. Typically used in naturalization projects for its spreading nature, American Hazelnut is ideal for our zone 4 customers.

If you're a zone 3 prairie customer, don't worry! American Hazelnut can still thrive but needs additional care and protection from our harsh prairie climate.

The edible nuts mature from September to October and are usually roasted or eaten fresh. Make sure you take time to notice American Hazelnut's variable and beautiful fall color that ranges from orange, rose, purplish-red, yellow, and green.

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