A small thorny deciduous tree with shallow, three-to five-lobed mid-green leaves. In spring double pink flowers are produced, often followed by bright red fruit which are harmful if eaten. A good small tree for all gardens as it is tough enough to stand exposed sites, city pollution and even costal conditions while also having ornamental value too.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
