Hazel Alder

The shrub is known colloquially as the "hazel alder," or less frequently as the "common alder" or "smooth alder," grows naturally in the types of thickets found on the banks of rivers or streams; one of its best uses is for naturally revitalizing such areas that have been damaged by erosion or other types of deforestation. Besides acting as a stabilizing and restoring shrub, the hazel alder has pleasant red-green catkin flowers that can blend in as a subtle addition to the borders of your garden. The bitter, astringent bark can be brewed into a natural tea, acting as a home remedy for mouth pain, coughs and some mild stomach ailments. The hazel alder's fruit forms in small cones, which arrive in the fall and remain on the shrub for much of the winter. Though the hazel alder is happiest near running water, swamps or ponds, it will still thrive in other moist soil with PH levels between 6.8 and 7.2, if given sufficient space to grow.
