Pink Hawthorn
Crataegus laevigata Rosea Flore Pleno

This beautiful small rounded tree, a pink-flowered form of our British native hawthorn or May, is smothered in fragrant pink blossom in spring, then laden in autumn with bunches of bright red "haws" that make excellent food for hungry birds. The foliage also usually colours richly towards the end of the year. Very tough and hardy, ideal for exposed or coastal sites.

Size after 10 years:
approximately 4m (13ft) tall by 3m (10ft) across
