Crataegus phaenopyrum

Washington Hawthorn

These thorny, densely flowering small trees have hardwood trunks that resemble muscles. White, pink, or red flower clusters are followed by small fruits which attract birds. Some fruits are juicy enough for jelly. Autumn foliage turns brilliant red or orange. After leaf drop, the wide-spreading branches are picturesque. Plant in a shrubbery border, behind lower shrubs, or as hedges or lawn trees. Do not plant where small children can get hurt by the thorns. Thrive in open woodlands and in almost any soil. Need winter chill. Prune to shape.
Crataegus phaenopyrum, Washington Hawthorn
