Ornamental hawthorn. Rare in UK horticulture which is a great shame as this is a very fine small ornamental tree. Creamy-white flowers in spring, which will be enjoyed by bees, followed by handsome glossy leaves in summer.
The crowning glory of Crataegus ellwangeriana 'Fire Ball' however come in late summer and autumn when there is a terrific display of large crimson red fruits (great for the birds) and a equally striking display of orange-red autumn foliage.
Fully hardy and tolerant of a wide range of conditions. H: up to 5m
