Details / Key Facts

Crataegus monogyna – Hawthorn hedging is very practical as it will grow anywhere and is pretty much fool-proof. Unlike most hedge plants Crataegus monogyna is blessed with three seasons of interest: spring boasts a froth of the simple, white slightly scented flowers that stand out against the blackness of the woods and. Summer is a mass of dark green lobed leaves and then autumn sees astonishingly red haws proliferate. Even in winter the spiny silhouettes of the black wood look spectacular on a frosty day.
