The Washington Hawthorn tree is an attractive small tree, growing to about 30 feet tall. This native American tree is ideal for a smaller garden, or for background in a larger one. It fits perfectly into an informal or rural garden, and it can also be clipped into a dense, secure hedge around your property. It has white flowers in spring, followed by large clusters of bright red berries that last all through winter, bringing color and interest to that dreary season. In fall the vivid-green glossy leaves turn rich shades of scarlet and orange, so this tree has interest and color in every season – a must for any small garden, where we want plants that perform well all year round. It is hardy to zone 3, and it grows well across most of the country.

  • Handsome small garden tree
  • White flowers followed by red berries
  • Dramatic fall colors of scarlet and orange
  • Grows well in colder regions
  • Top choice for alkaline soils

Grow the Washington Hawthorn Tree in a sunny or very lightly-shaded spot, in any well-drained soil. It is an especially appropriate choice for alkaline soils, which it tolerates easily. Once established it is moderately drought resistant and it is more disease resistant than most other hawthorn trees. It has few significant pests or diseases. The berries can be eaten, and they are often made into delicious jellies. It is hard to beat this classic tree as a top choice in any garden.
