Dwarf American Hazelnut
Small Compact Plant-Dense Runner Producer Ecos
This seed selection was created using plants that fruit on 1-2 ft. plants and spread profusely by runners. After 15 years plant height runs between 2 -3 ft. tall. Small profuse catkins adorn the stems in winter. Small nuts are produced in profusion in September. These were selected based on the plants overall height and runner production making it easier to reproduce clonally by root division rather than seed. Plants produce most of their energy into runners. This selection is one of the easiest to clone. Each American Hazelnut has a different form and this one has the highest rate of stolons per plant than any we have found. Hardy to -30 F. Cannot ship to OR,WA
