Hawthorn, Wild Form (Crataegus monogyna) bare-root 6-year-old tree, organic

$40.00

Please note:  We will be shipping a limited number of 6-year-old bare-rooted hawthorn trees this spring (2021). All of them are quite well developed.  Shipping will start March 15th to the warmer states until such time as the trees break dormancy around May 1st.  If you have a particular shipping week in mind, please let us know by using the “order comments” field at checkout.

Family: Rose (Rosaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 8

Small to mid-sized deciduous thorny bush to small tree to 30 feet and equally as wide, can be kept trimmed to desired size and even does well as a hedgerow species. Tree prefers full sun to part shade and deep, moist to mesic soil of average fertility. No compost or fertilizer is needed or recommended.  Space trees 30 feet apart or if making into a hedgerow plant 5 feet apart.  A giving plant to bird and beast alike.  Traditional usage (TWM): maladies of the heart. Hawthorn is considered to be an adaptogen for the heart.  Tree has a beautiful fountaining habit, and the fruits are really good to eat fresh, dried, or in confections (but remove the seeds lest they remove a tooth).

Plant certified organically grown, will be bare-rooted to ship

  1. Question

    Marc

    I currently live in an apartment in the midwest with East-facing windows (and NO BALCONY), (on the border of hardiness zones 5b and 6a) but will be moving into a house within 2 years. Because these trees take so long to grow from seed, I would like to get one of these trees and grow it in a pot in my apartment so it will be well underway for transplanting on my property. What is the best way to keep this tree alive and thriving in the apartment conditions I just described? Thank you!

      Hi Marc,
      thanks for getting in touch. Hawthorne trees don’t size well to pots–they are fast-growing and woody. I suggest staying in touch to buy a tree when you’re ready to plant it outdoors–we have a large number of these coming on in our nursery. Richo

      Small to mid-sized deciduous thorny bush to small tree to 30 feet and equally as wide, can be kept trimmed to desired size and even does well as a hedgerow species. you probably need 30 feet to give the tree justice, unless you’re hedgerowing, in which case the trees can be planted quite closely.

      Do Hawthorns grow in zone 8/9? We have alkaline soil here.

      Hello Jeanne,
      We have Crataegus monogyna listed zones 4 to 8. I cannot really envision these trees not growing anywhere they were planted, they seem to me to be ultimately adaptive.

      I recommend our wild hawthorne bare root trees and they can be pruned to stay small.

      Sorry I missed these. Will I have to wait a year for one of my own?

      Hello Francis-Olive,
      Right, I thought this might happen. Bare-roots need to be dug, pruned and replanted in dormancy, otherwise it can be shocking to the trees. Thats why I had to shut down sales when the trees in the field started to bud. BUT, I have a contingency plan. Trees that were small enough to repot into the thin 9-inch-deep tree bands were repotted, actually using soil from the field, as trees don’t like rich soil. And so, you can hit “waitlist” on the potted HAwthorn, Wild Form and we’ll send you a potted one. It will take 4 to 6 weeks for delivery, but potted trees can be transplanted anytime.

      Oh perfect. I am on the waitlist. I have several things in my cart now…. I can pay for the tree now as well. 4-6 weeks its not a problem for the wait. Good news on the ‘poor soil’. I have plenty of that in my garden 😉

  5. Question

    Debbie Jo

    Hi Richo. Which of your three Hawthorns would do best in my location? I am at 1000′ southern Sierra zone 9 where it gets wickedly hot. I can probably use the hedgerow variety as well, I will be harvesting it for medicinal heart support.

    Also, do you sell any of the medicinal passion flower or only the edible fruit variety?

    I can not thank you enough for your life endeavor in your farm and outreach of great medicine.

      Hi Debbie Jo,
      I recommend the bare-root Crataegus monogyna as they are extremely robust. Our passionflower, official (Passiflora incarnata) is the medicinal kind.

  6. Question

    jD

    Does this tree lend itself to espalier? If not, do you have any suggestions for a hedge solution in Zone 4? (Wyoming) Do you have an evergreen hedge suggestion for same zone? Thanks!

      JD,
      Just got in from the field which looks quite different now that the weeds have been buried under 6 inches of sopping wet snow. Yes, the trees protruding from the snow look like they’re already espalier’d. One could tack them right to a fence and it would soon be impenetrable. If I remember correctly we recommend 5 foot spacing for a hedgerow although this could be given plenty of leeway depending on the skill of the gardener to weave it. Evergreen hedges tend to be coniferous in colder zones. I suppose our Cedrus libani could be used. Holly trees would work if they’re allowed. Nobody wants to try to push between 2 holly bushes. Ouch.
