14 Thornless Cockspur Hawthorn

Thornless Cockspur Hawthorn, Crataegus Crusgalli Var. Inermis

This is a small tree that can grow up to 30 feet tall and up to 35 feet wide. As the name suggests, this hawthorn does not have thorns. The flowers bloom in white clusters in late May followed by bright red fruit that may present a litter problem. It has dark green, glossy leaves that turn orange-red in the fall. This tree has good resistance to leaf blight and does well in our urban forest.
