Crataegus monogyna

Crataegus monogyna

Crataegus monogyna is the native common hawthorn, a common feature in British hedgerows.

It produces small fragrant white flowers in the spring, which are followed by red haws in the autumn.

The leaves are a glossy dark green, turning yellow in the autumn.

The dense thorny stems provide a useful barrier.
