3-9

Habit
Shrub or small tree to 15ft tall.

Sun/Soil
Enjoys full sun to part sun and moist soil.

Germination/Sowing
The seeds germinate easily best when sown in fall, either outside in flats or directly in place. 

Growing/Care
Plants should be watered routinely during the first season until established. Old branches can be pruned out in dormant season. 

Harvesting
Fragrant and pretty cream-white blossoms appear in May, with the fruits ripening at the end of July or the beginning of August. Flowers, leaves, and berries are used medicinally

Culinary Uses
Edible berries or 'haws' are a deep purple-black and quite tasty. They turn a deep purple-black colour when ripe and the flavour is lovely, to me like a cross between a sweet apple and a salal berry. It’s best not to swallow the seeds.

Medicinal Uses
Black Hawthorn is a traditional medicine used to by groups indigenous to the PNW as a strengthening tonic for the heart.
