Washington Hawthorn

Washington Hawthorn- Crataegus phaenopyrum, is a small native tree that blooms heavily in early June. A concentrated bloom makes it very attractive to honeybees and other pollinators. It can reach a height of 25′ to 30′ and spread to 20′ wide. Being a Hawthorn, it does have thorny branches which make it a favorite for nesting birds. It has a nice form and is an appropriate tree for a small lot or near powerlines.

Early summer bloom and summer shade recommend this tree but fall and winter are the season this tree shines. Fall color ranges from orange to red to purple interspersed with bright glossy red fruit. The fruit will linger through the winter months as winter birds will feed upon them.

Hardy in zones 3 to 8. It performs better in zones 7 and north
