Crataegus monogyna, commonly known as the English Hawthorn, is a species of hawthorn native to Europe, northwest Africa, and western Asia. It belongs to the Rosaceae family and is a deciduous shrub or small tree that typically grows up to 5-15 meters in height.

The English Hawthorn is characterized by its thorny branches, lobed leaves, and clusters of white flowers with five petals that bloom in spring. These flowers are often fragrant and attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies. In autumn, the tree produces small red fruits known as haws, which are edible and are often used to make jams, jellies, and wines.

In addition to its culinary uses, Crataegus monogyna has been valued for its medicinal properties for centuries. Various parts of the plant, including the flowers, leaves, and fruits, have been used in traditional herbal medicine to support cardiovascular health and improve circulation.

The English Hawthorn also has cultural significance and has been associated with folklore and symbolism in different cultures. It is often planted as a hedge or ornamental tree in gardens and parks due to its attractive flowers, colorful fruits, and wildlife value, providing food and shelter for birds and other wildlife. Hardy in zones 5-7.
