This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: all soils except waterlogged
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A small thorny, deciduous tree with shallow, three-to five-lobed, mid-green leaves. In spring, double pink flowers are produced often followed by bright red fruit which is harmful if eaten. A good small tree for all gardens, as it is tough enough to stand exposed sites, city pollution and even costal conditions, while also having ornamental value too.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
