Product details

Crataegus x prunifolia, known as Broad Leaved Cockspur Thorn, makes a magnificent small garden tree with a rounded habit at maturity.

White flower in the spring gives way to red hips by autumn so this tree is a popular choice for bird lovers. The green summer foliage turns a vivid yellow through to red in the autumn before leaf fall.

Originating from eastern America, this tough hardy tree thrives on most soils and even does well near to the coast, although not as the first line of defence.

Needing very little maintenance, this is a good choice for a small garden but the tree does carry thorns so we grow it with a suitable trunk to keep these away from young children’s height!

Mature Height: 3-7m
