Hawthorn - Crataegus 'Crimson Cloud' - size?
Hi all, it's that time of year when I'm looking at new things for the garden, and having been thinking on and off about a hawthorn for a while, but never quite sure, I've seen a Crataegus 'Crimson Cloud' in the garden centre which (with a money off voucher) is particularly good value.
But, as normal, different sites mention it growing to different sizes. Several mention 5m tall, others mention 8m tall, and one or two mention 10m tall.
Does anyone grow this specific cultivar, and if so, what sort of height & spread can I reasonably expect? Also, is it shallow or deep rooted (or in between)?
