Discover the rare beauty of Crataegus brachyacantha Blue Haw, also known as Blueberry Hawthorn. Despite being a black-fruited hawthorn species, it is only distantly related to other black-fruited species. The almost blue fruit of this ornamental plant gives it its common names, but its leaves, flowers, and foliage are equally striking. With origins in Louisiana, this species also occurs across neighboring states. Although rarely cultivated, the Crataegus brachyacantha Blue Haw is a unique addition to any garden.
