Pictures Of Hawthorn Berries In Texas – Species and hybrids) are mostly low-growing, evergreen, flowering shrubs. With a dense mounding growth habit, they are low-maintenance plants suitable for use in small gardens and foundation plantings.
Most cultivars grow uniformly 3 to 6 feet tall and wide. Some are large shrubs that can be trained to form a small tree.

Indian hawthorns are grown for their attractive neat, mounded form and clusters of flowers. The fragrant, pink or white crab-like flowers open in clusters above the leaves from April to mid-May. Blue-black berries appear in late summer and persist throughout winter. The leathery, dark evergreen leaves are rounded, about 2 to 3 inches long, turning purple in winter.
Black Hawthorn (crataegus Douglasii) (conventional)
Compact cultivars of Indian hawthorn are ideal for use as foundation shrubs, while larger cultivars can be used for hedges, mass planting or screening.
Indian hawthorns are sensitive to cold damage and should be located in protected areas if grown in upper South Carolina.
The plants prefer sun, although they will grow in partial shade. Indian hawthorn prefers moist, well-drained soil, but established shrubs are drought tolerant. It tolerates salt spray and sandy soils and is a good choice for coastal areas.
, the most common disease of Indian hawthorn. It is more harmful during the later periods of frequent rains in spring and autumn.
How To Get Rid Of Hawthorn Trees [a Thorough Guide]
The first symptoms are small, round, red spots on both the upper and lower sides of young leaves.
These enlarge and merge on more diseased leaves, forming large, irregular spots. Severe infections can cause early leaf drop.
Slow the spread of disease by spacing plants properly to improve air movement. Water shrubs with drip irrigation rather than overhead sprinklers. If sprinklers are used, water only established plants once a week as needed during the growing season and apply one inch of irrigation water each time. Collect and discard diseased leaves that have fallen in winter, then mulch the bushes.
Diseased bushes can be sprayed with Daconil (Chlorothalonil) when new leaves first appear in spring to early June. Spray every ten days in rainy spring weather or every two weeks in dry spring weather. Additional sprays may be needed in the fall. Follow label directions for dosage and safety. See Table 1 for examples of brands and specific products.

This same disease also affects red tip photinia and pears (such as Bradford pear), but can also be found on pyracantha, quince and loquat. For this reason, red tip photinia is rarely still found for sale.

I’ve been known to kayak around on a cold winter’s day…It’s not usually my style, as I’m more of a fan of summer, as hot as it gets. Nevertheless, I admit there is something to be said for looking at the wonderful world around us on these short, nippy days.
How Deep Are Hawthorn Roots And Do They Spread?
So I was recently paddling the waters of our own Congery River Oxbow Lake in central South Carolina on a partly cloudy and chilly January afternoon. Although there are many scattered evergreens in the swamp, most of the leaves have long since been lost. Thus, the kayaker is often faced with a continuous and varied palette of gray and brown, floodplain trees. And then, suddenly, this!
I have to tell you I kind of gasped when we rounded a bend and then this amazing shrub…a small tree, actually… It almost looks like it’s on fire, standing out from the drabness around it. Next, I must tell you that this is a native species of hawthorn – the green hawthorn,
All of the world’s hawthorns (sometimes called “haws”) belong to the genus Crataegus, and there are hundreds of species around the Northern Hemisphere, including North America. They occupy a wide variety of habitats, and many provide important sources of wildlife food and ornamental value.
The green hawthorn is a common inhabitant of southern wetlands and floodplains from Pennsylvania to Arkansas and Texas, then north to Florida. Stems of older individuals are often spiny.

All hawthorns are mostly deciduous. It has broadly oval leaves, but the shape is variable and many leaves are strongly lobed. The blades are serrated along the edges, and by the new year, all those leaves are dead.
The flowers are truly showy, snow white when fully open, and appear in late spring. All hawthorns have perfect flowers, that is, pollen and ovules are produced in the same flower. The flowers are held in tight clusters, each with five petals.
After fertilization, young fruits develop. During the long growing season, the fruits grow and swell, each containing 3-5 seeds. The mature fruit is what we call a “pome”, essentially like a miniature apple or pear. (Or Pyrakanta.)
At some point, the skin cells of the fruit begin to secrete red pigments. Clusters of ripe fruits, crowded on the branches, are a wonderful sight. I hope you find some to appreciate before the birds eat them.

Sometimes we take native plants for granted and forget the excellent qualities they bring to the landscape. An example is parsley-leaved hawthorn.
My office is at Hinds Community College and the campus is a virtual arboretum. Every tree and shrub looks part of the scheme, and winter color from berry-producing plants is definitely in the design.
For more than 12 years now, I’ve been admiring the parsley-leaved hawthorns on campus. Botanically speaking, they are Crataegus marshallii, at least in most references and in the U.S. According to Department of Agriculture websites. To keep us on our toes, perhaps it was changed to Crataegus apifolia.
Golden Bell Farm
The name tells you that the leaves look like parsley — not the curly kind, but the regular version. In spring, this member of the rose family is loaded with a blanket of snowy white flowers with long, delicate-looking stamens atop pink anthers.
I will simply say that they are beautiful, and that is only in the spring. I challenge you to find a small tree with more red berries in fall and winter than a parsley-leaved hawthorn. They are borne by thousands and the tree is visible from a long distance as the sun shows off their brilliant color.
Birds eat the fruit, but I noticed that each tree had growths on the upper branches that were perfect for birds.
