Corylus avellana | Hazel

In our forests, forest edges, thickets and hedges, one of the prominent shrubs is the Hazel, Corylus avellana. The shrub stands out in winter with its flowering catkins. It is the first plant species of our wild flora to begin flowering in the year.Sometimes the hazel blooms before the turn of the year. The ovoid leaves that end in a pointed tip and have a serrate leaf edge do not appear on the shrub until after flowering. Hazelnuts are not only eaten by humans, but are an important food source in winter for many animals. This native species can be used very well as a beautiful hedge.
