$3.95

Family: Rose (Rosaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 8

Small to mid-sized deciduous thorny bush to small tree can be kept trimmed to desired size and even does well as a hedgerow species. Hawthorn trees are pretty dependably grown from seed but it takes patience.  Seed sown in the spring will germinate the following spring–sometimes exactly 365 days from sowing!  Seed sown in the fall usually germinates the following fall.  Seedlings are very tough and can persist in nature for years until they get the chance to grow into trees.  Work up the seedlings out in gallon pots for a year or two before transplanting to landscape. 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. Tree has a beautiful fountaining habit, and the berries are really good to eat fresh, dried, or in confections (but remove the seeds lest they remove a tooth).

10 seeds/pkt., Certified Organically Grown
