The Washington hawthorn is a prized tree for many across the USA. The first thought that comes to mind about this tree is how it is native and in the spring/summer it puts on a beautiful show of white flowers! This is considered a tree that stays on the smaller side so it can fit in many landscapes. It does have small berries that are beautiful but you should not eat them. The hawthorn also has small thorns on the branches is the main downfall. If the thorns won’t bother you, then this tree is perfect for you and your landscape even if you have a small yard! White flowers in early June start the color show. Reddish-purple leaves turn dark green, then orange, scarlet or purple. Small, glossy red fruits stay on tree into winter, and are preferred by songbirds.
