Plant Species of the genus Crataegus

Information about this genus
Name: Crataegus
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Grow in sun or partial shade in any soil. Cultivars may be budded in summer or grafted in winter. Sow seeds as soon as ripe in a position protected from winter frosts. Germination may take up to 18 months. Some hawthorns are prone to fireblight.
Description: This genus within the Rosaceae family contains around 200 species. Most are spiny large shrubs or small trees. The leaves are alternate, simple or lobed, some toothed and deep green in color. The white to pink flowers have 5 sepals and/or petals depending on the species, and are carried in corymbs or are solitary. They are followed by nutlets, the fleshy covering of which is edible. The colors of the fruit can be black, yellow or bluish green but the majority are red. Crataegus laevigata and C. monogyna have been used as hedging plants for centuries.
