A showy, small tree, the hawthorn breaks into clouds of white flowers in spring, followed by vivid fall color, and long-lasting red winter fruits. The fruits, which resemble rosehips, stand out in a snowbound landscape. Robins sometimes line the branches in mid- to late-winter, harvesting the fruits.
Hawthorns prefer a well-drained, slightly acidic soil but are unflappable in heat and humidity.
