Paul is the surname of famous nurseryman brothers, known for their Victorian roses, who fell out and started rival nurseries. Fortunately, the Scarlet Hawthorn survived the drama to unleash its very own in gardens, for those clusters of scarlet-red rosette flowers are striking and intense. The result is a brilliant show that’s suited to large stages, like street and avenue plantings. When the Autumn colour fades, the low deviation of the branches forms a wonderful silhouette against cold, clear days. Deciduous, it will grow to 5 – 7 m.
Suitable for: Street or avenue planting, feature and group planting.
Features: Autumn colour, tight rosette clusters of deep pink-red flowers.
Botanical Name: CRATAEGUS laevigata ‘Paul’s Scarlet’
