Crataegus Laciniata Oriental Hawthorn

Oriental Hawthorn
Crataegus laciniata

This popular small garden tree was introduced from the mountains and rocky slopes of the Orient in the early 19th century. It is desired for the deeply dissected leaves with a feathery appearance and bundles of white flowers. But if you're taking a closer look, watch out for the thorns, which are frequently present on hawthorns.
