Crataegus laevigata 'Rosea Flore Pleno' (Double Pink Hawthorn) - 9L Pot

Code: TR0141
Crataegus laevigata 'Rosea Flore Pleno' (Double Pink Hawthorn) - 9L Pot
Crataegus laevigata 'Rosea Flore Pleno' (Double Pink Hawthorn) - 9L Pot

A beautiful change from red hawthorn, this tree has gorgeous double flowers in spring, which are a rich pink, an asset to any garden, and its bushy nature means you can blend it with red and white hawthorns to create a tricoloured hedge, which will certainly turn heads. As with all hawthorns, the fruit can cause mild stomach upsets if ingested, so is best avoided, and kept out of the reach of small children.

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: 8m

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.
