      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.

    Wondering if the deer would be likely to destroy this. And is this an evergreen? Thanks!

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

      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.
