HAWTHORNE Trees, Seeds and Dried Herb

Douglas Hawthorne (Black Hawthorne)  Crataegus douglasii - A deciduous shrub or small tree with white blooms in the spring followed by clusters of red edible berries.   The fruits are eaten raw or are cooked and used for jellies, jams or desserts.  Medicinally, the berries and blooms have been used to concoct a heart tonic.  The bark is used to treat diarrhea and the thorns are sometimes used to treat arthritis.  The plant prefers a moist soil in full sun or semi-shade (though full sun is best for fruit production) and is tolerant of air pollution.  Hawthorne wood is used in the manufacture of tool handles, as it is tough and hard..  Very easy plant to grow and will make a good hedge.  Like most other hawthorne varieties, they begin bearing fruit in 5-8 years from seed.  Hardy to -10F (-23.3C);  height: 30ft.
