Description:
A hardy, fast growing semi-evergreen small tree with dense branches and practically no thorns. Decorative for most of the year. White flowers followed by yellow edible fruit. Fairly large oval leaves turn orange-red in late autumn. Adapts to almost any well-drained location, including clay soils but prefers a lime rich soil and dislikes extremely dry conditions. Frost hardy. Suitable for street planting, hedging or as a specimen. For a similar tree but a red berry look at the Crataegus Smithiana.
