Hawthorn, Wild Form (Crataegus monogyna) seeds, organic

(1 customer review)

$4.95$80.00

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 in turn remove a tooth).

    Hi.
    What is the difference between the crataegus monogyna and the crataegus laevigata?
    Also, will you be getting these plants back in stock?
    Thank you so much

      hi Danielle,
      These are 2 different species, each of which is somewhat variable in its own right. Monogyna is one-seeded as its name implies and is white-flowered. Laevigata is often 2-seeded–it is the true mayflower and usually flowers red. Both are good for making herbal medicine. Hit “waitlist” for both species, I am still cogitating on what to do about the plants I have in stock. There are some challenges, like they are oversized…

    Is there a difference, medicinally, between this one and crataegus douglasii which is the native one in my area of Wyoming?
