Favorite or New Plant
'Crimson Cloud' Hawthorn
If you're looking for a small flowering tree, consider planting a 'Crimson Cloud' hawthorn (Crataegus laevigata 'Crimson Cloud'). Growing to a height of 15 to 25 feet with equal spread, this tree works well in smaller spaces. Blossoms of crimson red flowers with white star-shaped centers appear in late spring. Fall foliage color ranges from bronze to red-orange.
