A lady on the allotment next to me has asked me to propagate her tree for her, but doesn't know what it is, any ideas?
It looks like a red-flowered form of Hawthorn.
Thanks Alan, never seen a red flowered one (or noticed one any ways).
It's Crategeous Pauls Scarlet, I've just planted one I think the blossom is amazing.
Not sure if it sets seeds, AllotmentLady, being double-flowered. If not, it might be difficult to propagate I'm afraid - I'd guess it's grafted onto the common hawthorn, which might be something to try... it's reasonably cheap to buy a new one though, I think.
How pretty is that?! It's a good time to spot these when out and about. Hawthorns and their May flowers are fab.
