One of the best ornamental hawthorns, although sadly litle known in the UK, native to the southeastern U.S. and growing into a dense, rounded, and largely thorn-free tree that may grow to 6-8m in height with a broad spreading crown. Leaves are ovate to elliptic and glossy dark green, turning to purple-red in autumn. Massed clusters of fragrant white flowers in spring will attract bees. Abundant large red fruits will provide and autumn and winter treat for the birds. Fully hardy and very robust.
Crataegus viridis Winter King is easy to grow, trouble free and will thrive in almost any type of garden soil and aspect.
