Hazelnuts may grow but may not produce nuts reliably. Hazelnuts are susceptible to Eastern Filbert Blight. Look at the publication from Oregon for more information https://www.extension.umn.edu/environment/agroforestry/components/hybrid-hazelnuts.pdf
Also, look at the link From Edible Landscaping regarding culture and resistant cultivars http://ediblelandscaping.com/products/nuts/Filberts/
