Introducing Crataegus laevigata English Hawthorn, Mayflower, Midland Hawthorn, Smooth Hawthorn, Woodland Hawthorn: a small, rounded tree adorned with dark green leaves, thorns, and beautiful white flowers with red anthers. This species of hawthorn is native to western and central Europe, from Great Britain to Spain, with a presence in North Africa as well.

But this tree is not just aesthetically pleasing. It holds incredible medicinal value, particularly when it comes to treating disorders of the heart and circulation system, such as angina. Western herbalists often refer to it as a "food for the heart", as it increases blood flow to the heart muscles and restores normal heart beat. These beneficial effects are attributed to the bioflavonoids found in the fruit, which also act as antioxidants and help prevent the degeneration of blood vessels.

Crataegus laevigata also bears scarlet fruits, measuring up to 1/2 inch, which can be used to make delicious jams and preserves. The leaves of this hawthorn are distinguishable by their shallow lobes with forward-pointing tips, setting them apart from the related common hawthorn species, C monogyna. The flowers of Crataegus laevigata have more than one style, resulting in slightly oval fruits with multiple seeds, unlike the round fruits of common hawthorn.

If you’re looking for a beautiful and useful addition to your garden, Crataegus laevigata English Hawthorn is an excellent choice. With its stunning flowers, scarlet fruits, and valuable medicinal properties, it is sure to bring both beauty and health benefits to your outdoor space.
