Crataegus persimilis 'Prunifolia' | Hawthorn Tree
Crataegus persimilis 'Prunifolia' (Prunifolia Hawthorn) - 9L Pot
This bushy tree in the hawthorn family has beautiful white flowers and broad leaves, which provide strong autumn colours. The fruits are bright red, and whilst the birds find them delicious, they can cause mild stomach upset if ingested, so best to leave them to your feathered friends. However, they will bring more wildlife to your garden, so you get to watch them all through the seasons.

We have developed an eco friendly polypot that is currently in use across our 9 litre range. This polypot has less than 20% of the plastic used by a regular pot, and is importantly recyclable. Polypots also prevent root spiraling, encouraging a healthier root system.
All trees arrive in an extra thick cardboard box with a clamp to hold their pot in place. This prevents them from moving around on their journey.
Nursery staff will wrap the roots of our bare root trees and use compost to keep them moist during transportation. This extra protection prevents them from drying out, allowing for a flying start. We also use the same specialised box that our potted trees have to keep them nice and secure as they make their way to your home.
