The Washington Hawthorn is a gorgeous prized tree for many across the USA! The first thought that comes to mind about this tree is how it is a small native tree, that is absolutely beautiful and not very hard to grow! This is considered a tree that stays on the smaller side so it can fit in many landscapes. It typically grows less than 30' feet in height. The Washington Hawthorn is hardy down to zone 4. The Washington Hawthorn tends to grow in a pyramidal shape naturally so it looks great with little to no pruning. 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 the Washington Hawthorns into winter and are preferred by songbirds. This Hawthorn is a very important nectar plant for bees!

Healthy young hawthorn The big tree in our yard just died recently and we had to have it removed. Wanted something smaller this time. This tree will do good
Thank you very much!
I hate Washington hawthorn thorns so much! It is in their name though so that’s what they are about haha. But otherwise these are one of the most beautiful trees that exist.
Thank you very much!
