Product details

Crataegus x lavallei is a hybrid cross between Crataegus mexicana and Crataegus calodendron, originating back in the 1870’s.

The mid green, oval, glossy leaves appear late in spring and turn red through to yellow in autumn, often persisting on the tree until December; making this a useful screening tree for gardens. 

The white flowers appear in clusters in May and are followed by orange fruits, known as Haws, that are retained on the tree for most of winter, often providing a fine contrast with the foliage as it turns.

Crataegus x lavallei, like other Hawthorns, is a tough contender, tolerating most soil conditions, from moist soil through to very dry, from chalk to clay.  This tree will thrive on the trickiest of sites, coping with a cold, exposed aspect and salt laden winds from the coast.

As a mature tree the Hybrid Hawthorn produces a wonderfully rounded, dense crown and is less thorny than other Crataegus species. It is small and versatile tree which is useful in a range of situations, for small gardens it will provide a compact tree with year round interest and in addition can offer some screening due to the late leaf fall.

Mature Height: 5-7m
