Crataegus monogyna, commonly known as the hawthorn or single-seeded hawthorn, is a deciduous shrub or small tree native to Europe, Northwest Africa, and Western Asia. Belonging to the Rosaceae family, this species is celebrated for its ornamental value, ecological importance, and medicinal properties.

In appearance, C. monogyna typically grows up to 5-15 meters in height, with a dense, thorny crown and dark green, serrated leaves that turn a vibrant red or orange in autumn. During spring, it produces clusters of fragrant white flowers with five petals, attracting pollinators like bees and butterflies. These flowers give way to small, red berries known as haws, which persist through winter, providing sustenance for birds and other wildlife.

Hawthorn is valued for its ecological contributions. Its dense growth habit provides shelter and nesting sites for birds, while its flowers and berries serve as a vital food source for a range of wildlife species. Additionally, hawthorn is often planted in hedgerows and wildlife gardens to create natural barriers and enhance biodiversity.

In horticulture, C. monogyna is prized for its resilience, adaptability, and attractive features, making it a popular choice for hedging, landscaping, and urban greening projects. Its tolerance of various soil types and climatic conditions further adds to its appeal as a low-maintenance ornamental plant.

Overall, Crataegus monogyna stands as a symbol of resilience, beauty, and ecological importance, weaving its way through the landscapes and cultural tapestries of Europe and beyond.

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).
