Hawthorn
Crataegus prunifolia

Wonderful small ornamental tree, compact and rounded in shape, smothered with fragrant white blossom in spring, then laden in autumn with bunches of bright red "haws" that make excellent food for hungry birds. The foliage is deep glossy green in summer, colouring richly late in the year. Very tough and hardy, ideal for exposed or coastal sites.

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