|Hawthorn - Snowbird|
|Oval tree that has beautiful, fragrant, double white flowers and dark green leaves. Grows to 20 feet.|
|Botanical (latin) name:||Crataegus x mordenensis 'Snowbird'|
If you only enough room in your yard for just one tree, then you would do no wring by picking the Snowbird Hawthorn. The Snowbird is narrower and hardier than "Toba". The abundant, fragrant, double white flowers bloom in late May and are certainly a joy to behold.
The one drawback to planting a hawthorn is the long thorns the branches, especially if pets or small children are present in the household. They thorny nature however makes them extremely effective as a hedge to keep out nosy neighbours.
Hawthorns flourish in well drained sandy loam and do very poorly in heavy clay soils or low areas of the yard where water accumulates in the spring or after a heavy rainfall.
The hawthorns require annual pruning to keep them vibrant from year to year.
