Crataegus laevigata 'Paul's Scarlet' is a small, rounded, deciduous tree with a dense, rounded crown and ascending, thorny branches with deeply lobed, glossy, emerald green leaves that turn yellow and bronze in autumn. Masses of beautiful, double, scarlet-rose flowers bloom in clusters in late spring, covering the whole crown and creating a spectacular display. The blossoms are followed by black red fruits in autumn. Crataegus laevigata 'Paul's Scarlet' is easily grown in any type of soil, as long as it is well-drained. It prefers full sun and best flowers occur in full sun, but the plant tolerates partial shade. It is tough and resilient, adaptable to all kinds of growing conditions including coastal, exposed, or polluted. Low maintenance, requires minimal pruning. Crataegus laevigata 'Paul's Scarlet', is a beautiful, tough ornamental tree, great addition to any garden. Perfect as a specimen tree in cottage or urban gardens. It can be also used for hedges and screens.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
