Winter King Hawthorn, Crataegus Viridis 'Winter King'

Winter King Hawthorn is a North American native tree which grows up to 30 feet in height and spread. The thorns are small and inconspicuous. The silver-grey bark peels off in sections to reveal the inner orange bark, making this tree a striking specimen in the winter landscape. The white blooms are followed by large, orange/red fruits which persist on the naked tree throughout the winter, adding to its landscape interest.
