Rather different to our other hawthorns, the Red Hawthorn Crimson Cloud (Crataegus laevigata 'Crimson Cloud') is noted for its dramatic display of single, multi-coloured flowers. The attractive flowers are dark reddish colour around the edges with cream centres, these flowers appear in late spring. It is further complimented by its attractive shiny, green leaves. Like other hawthorns, this variety is well-suited to most garden positions and with a height of just 5m (16ft) and spread of 5m (16ft makes this ideal for covering a large wide gap in an existing garden. This tree is easily trimmed and a few of these planted together will make an attractive hedge.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
Climate Change has increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust, frost damage etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season or less. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy and will bounce back.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
Mature Tree Warranty
Once a tree is over 3 years old, the failure rate is considerably less and our Tree Warranty does not cover it at 100%. Please check details.
Black Spots On Leaves
Nothing to worry about, this is purely a cosmetic issue, it is usually caused by excessive moisture. Remove the affected leaves and burn ideally. Keep the moisture down (water the roots not the foliage) and prune to allow light and air into the foliage. A general purpose fungicide may help. Low air and light conditions can increase your risk e.g. planting in a fenced corner.
