Hawthorn: Probably the best deciduous Species in Europe for bonsai

Its no secret that I love Hawthorns as a species for Bonsai. They truly are a four season tree, great in Winter and the image the display with all the fine branches, in Spring the fresh bright green serrated tiny leaves, as The flowers come in early Summer and then the Berries and finally a riot of colour in the Autumn…and if you are lucky (as seen here) the berries remain.

  1. Your lucky to have this variety of Hawthorn to work with, the one we have here in america has long thorns and larger leaves as well as a flower that exudes a scent of rotting flesh!
