The Hazelnut is also known as Filbert or the American Hazelnut.

The Hazelnut will begin to produce nuts after about three to four years and reach full nut production at about eight years of age.  This bush is very versatile.  It grows well in almost all soil and light conditions, can be used as a hedge or privacy screen, and many different types of birds and wildlife adore the nuts that it produces.  This bush will display a nice red / orange / yellow color in autumn.  The Hazelnut will grow in full sun to heavy shade.  For best nut production, plant in full sun.
