Corylus americana

Common name: American Filbert

Native plant

One of my favorite plants. The nut it produces is edible, a point upon which Euell Gibbons and I agree. Filbert likes as least half-day sun and good garden soil. A harbinger of spring, when male catkins elongate 2-3 inches and release puffs of pollen. The female flower is slightly bigger than the head of a ballpoint pen. Excellent red, yellow, and orange fall color. Many people tell me their filbert never produces seed. All filberts will produce seed, although you have a better chance if you have 3 or more plants. You must pick the seed by September 1 or the varmints will pick them for you!
