Filbert contorted bush "Harry Lauder's Walking Stick" Mature height 8-10' Curled and twisted irregular branching rivals other small bushes for its eye-catching ornamental appeal as a specimen plant. In late winter the golden catkins hang down among the gray gnarled branches of the filbert, making it a plant for all seasons. The catkins shed their pollen very late. Red Dragon contorted filbert is the best pollinator since it sheds its pollen very late too. These plants are on their own roots, so they do not sucker bothersome rootstock growth. Also called hazelnuts. Space 8' circle Zones 4-8.

Jefferson Filbert - Corylus avellana Eta Filbert - Corylus hyb
Filberts Dessert In Hand Jefferson is the new filbert that is replacing Barcelona as the leading variety.

Pollinated by the late pollen shedding Eta and early pollen shedding York, which are also resistant to EFB, gives all three varieties excellent nut set. Introduced by Oregon State University. Plants are on their own roots. Space 8-10' circle. 15' height. Zone 5-8

Filbert in Husk 2 Sacagawea is a high quality early variety. Besides being a beautiful compact landscape plant, the nuts are delicious and larger than some varieties and high yielding. Sacajawea is pollinated by the York variety. Harvest starts in August at the nursery. The nuts are in demand as far as squirrels are concerned. Locate your filberts, also called hazelnuts, away from woods and trees where squirrels can move back and forth unseen. Plant them in the open. Squirrels would rather not run on the ground to a tree, as they are more exposed to predators. Planting 3 or 4 different varieties can increase yields. Space 10' circle Zone 5-8
