Beaked hazelnut flowers

Why didn't I look here first? There I was wandering the web in search of photos of beaked hazelnut flowers, and lo, Colin has some fine pictures in his Virtual Herbarium, already linked in my very own sidebar.

Thanks for the neat Herbarium link! I like what Colin is doing. I have the privilege of working, as a once-a-week volunteer in the Royal Botanical Gardens herbarium here in Ontario and find it very informative. I can't remember if I posted Beaked Hazelnut flowers on my blog or on my wildflower site but I do know that it is just finished blooming for this year in our area of Ontario.

I'm pretty sure that's the same hazelnut we have growing here. I'll have to look more closely next time I'm out in the bush.

Does anyone know where one might find plant/seedlings or even seeds of beaked hazelnuts? My husband is looking for some to plant in our garden. He says back home in NB they grow everywhere but here in ON we haven't seen any nor do the typical garden centres carry them or even know about them.

I've heard that there is a cultivar developed in Manitoba that doesn't have the prickles on the "socks" - maybe try Morden or Lindenberg?
