Easy to crack Hazelnuts are a favorite with nut lovers the world over. Hazelnut grows normally into a large shrub 12-15' high but can be trained into a small tree. Perfectly hardy wherever peaches grow. Here in Illinois and similar climates Hazelnut is best to plant where sheltered from north and west winds that sometimes damage the pollen-bearing catkins in winter. Drought resistant. For a rain garden.
