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.
