It’s hard to believe that a tree that’s so undeniably pretty in spring can also be so tough, but that’s Crusader® hawthorn. Despite its abundant white floral display in late spring, attractive silver bark, colorful fall foliage, and showy fruit, this thornless native hawthorn tolerates just about any challenge you can give it. It shrugs off wet and dry soils, is not fussy about pH levels, is unbothered by clay or salt, and resists the many diseases that often plague the rose family, so it’s the perfect choice for difficult urban areas, parking lots, street plantings, and more.
