This hawthorn can tolerate a wide range of growing conditions from quite dry to wet. It produces white flowers very early before the three-lobed leaves appear and small apple-like fruit in May. Fruit is used in making jelly. This species is usually shrub-like in form and a mature specimen can be quite spreading. Allow sufficient space for it broad, spreading character.
