Plant Select 2011! Folks who have bought this accent tree love its unique growth habit—it looks rugged and windswept when young. This Hawthorn would do well anywhere in Wyoming. It’s an attractive broad-headed tree, with small 3/8 inch thorns. Leaves are deeply lobed and medium green in summer. Numerous white flowers emerge in the spring and by late September the whole tree begins to glow as the abundant cherry like fruit ripens. They decorate the branches like ornaments, persisting into winter, and make a great bird attractant! This one wants full sun. This tree has done well at the Cheyenne Horticultural Field Station for more than 70 years!
