Price: €0.95

Hawthorn is a native Irish tree which hardly needs an introduction. An essential hedgerow plant, Hawthorn is a resilient, pretty tree with masses of white flowers in May and a crop of berries in late summer. It grows in the most exposed of places, though this will naturally stunt its growth. In a garden setting, it is an upright, rounded small tree which can grow to a height and spread of up to 5 or 6 metres. In a hedgerow, hawthorn is kept clipped or layed to make a stockproof boundary. It can be planted on its own or it can be part of a mixed hedgerow along with other native plants such as Blackthorn, Dog rose and Holly.  Read more about hawthorn hedges.
