The plain English White Hawthorn tree, Crataegus laevigata Plena, is medium sized, native and thorny with white flowers which can completely cover the tree in spring. They are double and develop a faint pink flush just before they fall. Hawthorn is an excellent tree for nesting birds. Suitable for most small gardens and any soil or site. English White Hawthorn trees can reach a height of about 8 metres.
This variety was bred in the 1770's.
How Standard Trees are Measured:
All our standards are graded by their girth in centimetres about 1 metre above soil level. They aren't graded by their height. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres. Generally standard trees are 2.5 - 4.5 metres tall when they arrive and they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us.
