The National Audubon Society presents a new line of native plants and trees that helps birds and wildlife thrive in your area! The Audubon® Native Washington Hawthorn Tree (Crataegus phaenopyrum) is the last of the Hawthorne's to bloom so there’s no worry about a late freeze killing off your flowers and fruit!

Highly ornamental trees, these natives mature with a rounded crown. The new foliage begins a reddish-purple color when unfurling and gradually changes to a beautiful, deep green. Clusters of brilliant-white flowers show off against the dark lustrous-emerald foliage. This is quite a showy bird-friendly tree.

The Washington Hawthorne is known for its stunning fall color! Its striking orange, scarlet, and even purple leaves in the fall make this a showstopper in your yard. Adorned with copious clusters of shiny red fruits all winter long, the birds and wildlife will savor these as they nest safely among the thorned branches. The red berries and gray trunk provide winter interest.

Planting and Application:

Washington Hawthorn Trees can be dense and lush, often grown as a hedge for a screen or security. The thorns deter any 2 or 4 legged trespassers while providing your local bird population security and protection. Lovely when planted in small groups, as a specimen in a lawn, or a street tree.

Supporting a variety of butterfly and moth larvae as a Host Plant, the Gray Hairstreak, Red-spotted Purple and Viceroy Butterflies benefit from this tree! Not to mention the Hummingbirds seeking nectar from the blooms. Songbirds like Cedar Waxwings, Quail, Turkeys and small mammals eat the fruit.

  • Shiny Red Fruits - Healthy Fruit For Humans & Birds
  • Late Blooming White Flowers
  • Ornamental Tree
  • Supports Waxwings, Finches, Thrushes, Cardinals, Mockingbirds & More
  • Hedge & Screen or Specimen

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Hawthorn Trees do the very best in full sun. You’ll get the most blooms and therefore fruit when planted in at least 6 hours or more of sunlight a day. Hardy and adaptable, these natives tolerate a wide range of conditions.

  • Full Sun
  • Tolerates Urban Pollution
  • Wide-Range of Soil & pH Preferences
  • Resistant to Fireblight & Salt Tolerant
  • Prune When Dormant
