Crataegus viridis 'Winter King'

Object Details

Description
This green hawthorn cultivar is known for being more disease resistant, having more flowers, larger fruit, silvery stems, better fall color, and being almost entirely without spines. It has beautiful bark, and brightly colored fruits which persist on the tree even when the temperature drops, making it an excellent winter tree. Understandably, it is a popular landscaping choice.
