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)
