Crataegus monogyna - Hawthorn
Crataegus monogyna - Hawthorn is the backbone of most British hedgerows and is one of the first species to produce new leaves in the Spring. If left untrimmed it will grow into a small tree with a very dense crown.
A very showy native species with fragrant, creamy white flowers in the Spring followed by green haws (berries) turning red in autumn.
Spiny, dense deciduous foliage which provides an excellent habitat for birds and insects.
Our cell grown Hawthorn plants are often used for hedge planting either on their own or mixed with other species such as Crab Apple, Blackthorn, Dog Rose etc. at a planting density of 6 plants per metre.
