Plants ordered now will ship Spring 2020.

Hawthorn, Wild Form (Crataegus monogyna) potted tree

$15.00

We have a field of wild hawthorne trees that will be dormant-dug in the fall of 2019 and spring of 2020.  They are large size (up to 24 inches and growing strong).  Stay tuned for availability.

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. 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).

      No, we won’t have potted wild hawthorn again for some time. In the spring of 2020 we are going to be shipping large bareroot wild hawthorn (waist high or so, with thick trunks like your thumb) and they will be $30.00 apiece.

      Hi Richo! Can you please let me know if you’ll have Crataegus monogyna and C. oxyacantha (or C. laevigata) available for Fall shipment? I tried to order yesterday (May 15) but you’re already out of stock for Spring shipment. So, now I’ll hope to plant in the Fall. I live in northern Colorado, so I believe planting dormant plants at that time should work ok. Thanks a bunch! Lyn

      Hi Lyn,
      English Hawthorn Trees are not out of stock. Here’s the link https://strictlymedicinalseeds.com/product/hawthorn-english-crataegus-oxyacantha-syn-crataegus-laevigata-potted-tree/
      These are very nice and are recommended. Regarding wild hawthorn, I have a large production area of C. monogyna and am planning to dig trees spring of 2019, so Crataegus monogyna will be available at that time. I will probably be shipping bare-root, as the roots are too large to fit in a pot.

  3. Question

    Justine

    I am trying to decide what Hawthorn tree to buy. We live in MN (twin cities) and we would like to groom it to be more of a tree than a shrub. I also will be harvesting the fruit for herbal medicine. Which do you recommend?

    Hi, is this also known as a sloe tree? I’m English and trying to find slow bushes to grow for home made sloe gin. Many thanks Lizzie

      Hi Lizzie-Pascale,
      It is a delight to hear from you. Sloe is Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) which has naturalized in our Eastern states. Depending on where you are, you may be able to find it in the wild. We don’t have it. I seem to remember that gin is sometimes flavored with Juniper berries, which herbalists know to be a powerful urinary antiseptic. But that’s not Sloe.

      Hi Cheryl,
      They are self-fertile and pollinated freely by gnats and other small flying insects. It is quite impressive in-season to see what the flowers attract! Soon enough they become the globular clusters of fruits that we so highly esteem in heart health.

      Hello Susan, Hawthorn is deciduous and very deer tolerant–the thorns help protect it.

      Admin Richo Cech

      Hello Wonshe,
      Trees are generally kept in the 5 inch deep pot and generally 12 to 18 inches tall. Our policy is to give the best plant first, so your best approach in attaining largest stock is to order early.

      Hello Wyatt,
      Under ideal circumstances, considering that the trees we sell are already 3-year-olds, maybe another 3 years or so.
