Product details

This small hawthorn tree was a sport of Crataegus Rosea Flore Plena found in a Herefordshire garden in the 1850s.

Probably the most popular of thorns on the market it won both the First Class Certificate in 1858 and the Award of Garden Merit in 2002.

It becomes smothered in double pink-red flowers in May which are all the more stunning as the spring flowering cherries have finished their display by then.

As root development can be rather slow we recommend moderate pruning in the first few years after planting so that good anchorage is achieved.

A good choice for urban and coastal planting it is tolerant of air pollution.

It does well in most soils including very dry and wet soils.

Mature height: 3-7m

Mature spread: 4-6m
