Crataegus Varieties in Standard Sizes
Most standard trees are only delivered bareroot, during the winter planting season (Nov-March).
Hawthorn (Crataegus species) is a wiry, tough, extremely hardy native tree, which is why it (specifically Crataegus monogyna) is Britain's most widely used thorny country hedge plant.
Several varieties of Crataegus laevigata make excellent specimen trees: Crimson Cloud & Paul's Scarlet both have red flowers, Rosea Flore Pleno is pink, and Plena has double white flowers. They are able to thrive almost anywhere and should grow well in paved urban areas.
All grow to about 8 metres tall, are fairly upright in habit and always respond well to pruning.

Standard trees are measured by their girth 1 metre above the ground, and young saplings are measured by height. Therefore, a 6/8cm Standard Hawthorn tree is much bigger than an 60/80cm sapling Hawthorn tree. If a tree is available in both sizes, it will be noted in the product descriptions.
