Crataegus arnoldiana

Crataegus anoldiana is nicely-shaped small hawthorn tree.  It produces a mass of white blossom in late spring, each flower highlighted with colourful stamens.

If you are interested to try eating hawthorn fruits, this is the species to go for. While most hawthorns produce edible fruits, they are not really palatable. Crataegus anoldiana is the exception, it produces large red fruits in the early autumn, which are sweet enough to eat fresh, and can also be used in the kitchen.
