Looking for a small, rounded tree with horizontal branches, thorny branches, and beautiful shiny green leaves? Look no further than Crataegus crus-galli, also known as Cockspur Hawthorn or Cockspur Thorn. Native to North America and tolerant of city conditions, this tree produces clusters of fragrant white flowers with pink anthers followed by bright red fruit. The leaves turn reddish-purple in autumn, adding to its seasonal appeal. While most varieties have sharp 2-inch thorns, the var. inermis lacks thorns and is a popular choice for ornamental purposes. Expand your landscaping options and consider incorporating one of the lesser-known wild forms with yellow fruit. A hardy and versatile addition to any garden!
