Hawthorn, Wild Form (Crataegus monogyna) potted tree
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).
