Crataegus monogyna (Common Hawthorn) is a small, fast-growing, thorny native deciduous tree or hedge, with dark glossy green leaves. In spring, flat clusters of prominent scented white flowers burst into leaf within a few days of the initial buds appearing, followed by glossy red haws in autumn, which sustain out native birds. The leaves are 3, 5 or 7-lobed, bright green, and tinged with red. Hawthorn makes an excellent hedge with a long season of interest.
