Product Details
Product Details

Crataegus laevigata 'Paul’s Scarlet', also known by its common name the Double Crimson Flowering Hawthorn, is an extremely hardy ornamental tree that will grow in almost any condition or soil. This includes coastal, exposed, polluted or damp sites, making it a very popular choice for a small ornamental tree. In May the plant is adorned with deep pinkish/crimson, ruffled double flowers followed by small, shiny red haws in autumn for extended seasonal interest.

Being part of the Hawthorn family, it has the characteristic sharp thorns on its branches which also ensures a safe home for a variety of native wildlife. The deeply lobed foliage is dark-green with a slight gloss, turning yellow and bronze for autumn.

The RHS award-winning Crataegus Paul's Scarlet tree will reach an estimated height and spread of 5 x 4 metres in 20 years.

Pot grown Crataegus 'Paul’s Scarlet' trees can be planted at any time of the year. If you’re planting Flowering Hawthorn in spring or summer, water well for the first few months. Increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If planting in autumn, you may only need to water a little.

Planting Crataegus laevigata Paul's Scarlet
Our Flowering Hawthorn trees are pot grown so can be planted all year-round. We recommend sprinkling Rootgrow when planting to enhance the growth quality.

When planting:

1. Dig a square hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide
2. Mix 50% of the original soil with 50% compost
3. Remove the tree from the pot and gently loosen the soil around the roots.
4. Place the tree into the hole, fill it with your soil mix and firm around gently (avoid banking the collar of the tree)


1. Remove weeds and grass around the area for the first couple years of the growing season.
2. When planting in spring and summer: water well for the first few months and increase watering if there are periods of hot or dry weather
3. When planting in autumn: you may only need to water a little
4. Use a rabbit guard if prone to rabbits in the area

Prune Crataegus Paul's Scarlet after flowering and trim away any extra shoots or branches from the lower part if you want to keep a clear stem. This in turn promotes growth at the crown and will create a more attractive aesthetic and form. A further trim can take place in the autumn if looking a little untidy. Remove any diseased, damaged or crossing branches to keep a good shape and allow light to filter into the heart of the canopy.

Pruning time: In summer, after flowering season
