A tough hawthorn, ideal for exposed situations.
A tough and durable hawthorn, ideal for exposed situations.
Its dark green leaves and very regular habit make this a favourite for urban planners where space is at a premium.
It thinks nothing of reflected heat and light bouncing off windows and pavements making it a very versatile native variation of the traditional hedgerow parent.
Very different from other hawthorns in that it has a columnar habit with tightly ascending branches, making it a very good prospect for both streets and small gardens.
It is also a good choice for coastal planting and tolerant of salt laden winds.
It does well on most ground, including very dry and wet soils.
Mature height: 10m
