Crataegus Crimson Cloud

The Crataegus Crimson Cloud Hawthorn tree, is native and thorny, with profuse red flowers and berries. A small to medium sized native, deciduous tree, Crimson Cloud is a Midland hawthorn. It is weighed down each May with huge numbers of flowers that appear in rounded clusters, making the tree hazy with colour and fragrance. The edges of each flower are deep pink-red, with white "eyes" in the centre. They have an unusual, rich fragrance that is very popular with bees & butterflies. 

Like all hawthorns, Crataegus Crimson Cloud is thorny and popular with nesting birds. The fruit, known as haws, have decent decorative value, being small, shiny red and carried in bunches all over the tree. They add to the interest of the autumn display and stay on the branches after all the leaves have fallen, providing food for birds such as finches and tits. It is suitable for most gardens making a tidy tree of no more than 10 metres.

History & uses of Crimson Cloud Hawthorn:

Crimson Cloud was actually bred over in America, though its parents were brought there from Britain and you would have a very tough time telling it apart from Crataegus laevigata Punicea, which was cultivated here in the 1820's. This tree won the RHS Award of Merit in 1990, which is a prize given to cuttings of plants on display for their beauty.
