Scarlet Hawthorns (Crataegus Laevigata)

Post  F. Waheedy on Sun Apr 03, 2011 9:09 pm

Hi friends,

Here's my three scarlet hawthorns full of flowering buds. They're still in training pots.
I quite like their rugged, weather beaten trunks.

Hope you like them.

Kind regards,

Faisal

They are going to be very nice bonsai!
The trunks are quite impressive, I agree with you, Faisal.
I hope you will be kind enough to show them when in bloom, too!
Thanks!

Very nice material. The flowers of this specimen are especially beautiful. You should remove all flower buds though, in order to lead the energy towards growth instead. As long as the flowers are let back they will take away leaf growth, and slow down the progression of the tree considerably. I always keep my trees from flowering when growth of leaves/branches is what I need. After the tree is developed it is time to let it flower.
You will have some very good Crataegus in a few years then, and shorten the period of developing the trees keeping flowers away when not needed.

Best regards

Thanks, Morten. I know the trees are not in the best of their health and I should have removed all the flower buds. Just couldn't resist.
guess it's too late now?

Hi Faisal,

Three lovely trees. Great trunks, bark and flowers.

Sounds like good advice from Morten, but I can see now why you'd be tempted to let them flower.

What do you feed them with?

Thanks, Paul. I use BioGold every 2 weeks and Miracle Grow liquid feed on weekly basis.
This year for the first time I'm Seaweed extract as well. Yet to see the results.

As far as I know, 'Paul's Scarlet' Hawthorn is Crataegus xmedia, (laevigata x monogyna). It grows quite well around here, and is occasionally seen as bonsai. The only danger is cedar-hawthorn rust.

Yes the attraction of having a hawthorn or two in your bonsai collection cant be understated nice trees.
