Hawthorn


Crataegus monogyna  the wild common May tree with white flowers in spring and red berries in autumn.

Important as part of any wildlife hedge as a larval foodplant for many species of moth and winter food for birds.

The fragrant hermaphrodyte flowers are produced in late spring (May to early June). They are pollinated by midges and later in the year bear numerous fruits called  haws. The haw is a small, oval dark red fruit about 1 cm long, berry-like, but structurally a pome  containing a single seed. Haws are important for wildlife in winter, particularly blackbirds, thrushes and waxwings. These birds eat the haws and disperse the seeds in their droppings

A few small seedling plants as well as seed available currently.
