Crataegus laevigata 'Plena' (Plena Hawthorn) - 9L Pot
Crataegus laevigata 'Plena' (Plena Hawthorn) - 9L Pot

Unusually for a hawthorn, this tree flowers white, and is a beautiful companion to the red-flowering hawthorn, and will hedge up with it just as well as any other. As with the red hawthorns, this plant has fruit which can cause mild stomach upsets if ingested, so is best avoided, and kept out of the hands of small children. Needing an average of one hour of care per year, this is a perfect tree for the beginner.

Caring and Maintenance

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 4m

Suited to almost all, well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Autumn is the best season for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.

This is an example of our polypot - note the fruit/ornamental trees we stock will vary in appearance according to species and season.
