This species of hawthorn features white flowers followed by relatively large purple/red berries. The berries are edibile and this is one of the best hawthorns for fruit production.
The silvery-grey-green leaves are more deeply cut than most other hawthorns.

Fill in the form below and we will notify you when Crataegus schraderiana hawthorn are back in stock.
If you have rabbits in the vicinity be sure to protect the trees, as rabbits like to eat young hawthorn bark.
If planting 1-year bare-root hawthorns, cut the main stem at about 1.5m - 1.75m to stimulate side shoots the following year. Pot-grown trees have already had this formative training at the nursery and do not need pruning.
The hawthorn species Crataegus schraderiana is native to south-eastern Europe, particularly Greece.
