Crataegus laevigata Pauls Scarlet: Bareroot Pauls Scarlet Hawthorn Trees in Standard Sizes


Paul's Scarlet Hawthorn is covered in masses of red, double flowers in May. So much so that it can be hard to see anything else: a wonderful sight. In autumn, it is covered in fruit called haws, and in a good year the rest of the tree can almost disappear from sight for the second time!

A medium-sized native tree, suitable for the average garden, it is probably too showy to fit into a woodland scheme and is best used as a specimen tree in easy sight at the back of a border or the centre of a lawn. It is thorny and attractive to nesting birds.
It can reach a height of about 6-8 metres.

Delivery season: Hawthorn trees are delivered bareroot during late autumn and winter, approximately November-March inclusive.
Choosing a size: Small trees are cheaper, easier to handle and more forgiving of less than ideal aftercare, so they are best for a big planting project. If instant impact is your priority, or if you are only buying a few plants for use in a place where it is convenient to water them well in their first year, then you may as well use bigger ones. All our bareroot trees are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Features:

  • Height: 8-10m
  • Soil: Almost any soil, damp, poor, or dry.
  • Use: Specimen, small garden, large container, avenue, urban
  • Colour: Red, double flowers in May
  • Thorny, mature trees are good for nesting birds
  • RHS Award of Garden Merit
  • Bareroot delivery only: November-March

Growing Paul's Scarlet

Very hardy. Almost any soil, damp, poor, or dry. Suitable for large containers designed for trees. Full sun or partial shade is best for the flower display. Tolerant of pollution and sea winds. Like the rest of its family, it is pretty much disease and pest free; all that is needed is to protect it from rabbits and deer while relatively young.

Did You Know?

This sport of Crataegus Rosea Flore Pleno was found in 1858. Previously classified Crataegus coccinea or oxycantha Plena.

Standard trees are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level: their trunk's waist measurement. Unlike sapling trees and hedge plants, standards aren't measured by their height, which will vary quite a bit both between and within species.
So, a 6/8cm standard tree has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8cm and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10cm around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
On average, standard trees are 2-3.5 metres tall when they arrive, but we cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
