Product details

Crataegus monogyna Stricta is a tough and durable Hawthorn with an upright shape, making it useful in areas lacking lateral space for growth.

The foliage, flower and fruit are similar to its native Hawthorn parent, Crataegus monogyna. White flowers are produced in clusters around May time, against the emerging foliage, which is generally late to appear in comparison with other tree species. The dark green,lobed leaves are small and turn yellow and orange in the autumn.

 The fruits, known as Haws, are produced following the flower and gradually ripen to a bright red by autumn time. They provide a great feast for birds and whilst are reported to be edible raw, generally they are best cooked to form jams if utilised at all.

Crataegus monogyna Stricta, like the native Hawthorn, is extremely tough, tolerating most soil types that are well drained and coping with extremely cold, exposed conditions. It will even tolerate some exposure to salt laden winds from the coast.

The upright Hawthorn is notable for its extreme columnar shape and stiffly ascending branches which make it a very useful tree in urban environments and gardens where space is limited. 

It is also a great architectural plant, bringing structure and shape to a planting coupled with year round interest.

Mature Height: 3-7m
