Western hazelnut is a handsome, open, multi-stemmed shrub native to forests from Santa Cruz in California northwards to British Columbia. Winter deciduous with decorative dangling catkins in late winter. The soft, somewhat hairy leaves turn yellow in the fall. Small amounts of tasty nuts are produced in late summer and are relished by wildlife and people. Part shade with some moisture but will tolerate fairly dry conditions once established. Grows 4 - 10 ft. tall. Somewhat deer resistant.
Corylus cornuta ssp. californica
