The Washington hawthorn (Crataegus Phaenopyrum)is a small, colorful tree. This tree grows at a medium rate, with height increases of 13–24″ per year. The Washington hawthorn grows to a height of 25–30′ and a spread of about 25′ at maturity. Reddish-purple leaves emerging in spring, then turning dark green as they are joined by a graceful display of white flowers. In autumn, the leaves turn orange, scarlet or purple. Red berries extend the colorful show into winter. A number of the songbirds rely on the tree’s late-season berries as a winter food source. The Washington hawthorn grows in acidic, alkaline, loamy, moist, sandy, well-drained, wet and clay soils. It is drought-tolerant.
Full sun is the ideal condition for this tree, meaning it should get at least six hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight each day.
