Crataegus chinensis syn. pinnatifida

Chinese Hawthorn Tree

A highly ornamental hawthorn from northern China, Crataegus chinensis syn.pinnatifida is a small to medium-sized, thorny, deciduous tree with strongly cut leaves which turn a rich red in autumn – one of the best for autumn colour. Small white flowers with pink anthers appear in spring. The fruits are like crab apples, bright red and tart, and almost 1”/2.5cm across; they are edible, and are used to make snack foods, jams and wines in China, where they are also used as a digestive aid in traditional Chinese medicine. Can also be used for hedging.
