Acclaimed for a strongly upright medium-sized habit and dramatic exfoliating River Birch-like bark, fast growing Farges Filbert was first mentioned in the late 1800s, but not introduced in the U.S. until after a 1996 Chinese, plant collecting expedition. Large, toothed oval green leaves show off a neat appearance
–pink-blushed when young and yellow for
a fall finale–amid tan and copper bark
that sheds dramatic paper-thin creamy salmon-colored sheets. An underutilized deciduous specimen tree boasting year-round appeal and tremendous ornamental value, Corylus fargesii tackles difficult
urban sites, grows in average garden soil, easily adapts to an array of climatic zones and seems unfazed by pests. Grows quickly
Size: 20' 0"–30' 0" high x 18' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.
Corylus fargesii (T-0297)

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!
Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings
Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.
Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer. Digging Dog's Early August 2017 Newsletter Link
