Explore Crataegus Monogyna, Trees Bushes and more!

Crataegus monogyna (Common hawthorn) is extensively planted as a hedge plant, especially for agricultural use. Its spines and close branching habit render it effectively stock- and human-proof, with some basic maintenance. The traditional practice of hedge laying is most commonly practiced with this species. It is a good fire wood which burns with a good heat and little smoke.
