The hazel (Corylus) is a genus of deciduous trees and large shrubs native to the temperate Northern Hemisphere. The fruit of the hazel is the hazelnut.
A hazel bush grows new shoots from its base, which grow evenly straight upwards and do not get side branches until their second year. These rods are suitable, and were historically used, for a number of purposes (such as hurdle making). Hazels can be coppiced to maximize the yearly growth of such rods.
"Hazel" is also an eye color that ranges (and often appears to shift in color) from brown to green.
