Midland hawthorn in Darwell Wood
Midland hawthorn in Darwell Wood
The native Midland hawthorn (Crataegus laevigata) differs from the common hawthorn (C. monogyna), also native, in its tulip-shaped leaves and fruit with the two styles shown protruding here. Midland hawthorn is less common that its sister species, but occurs quite widely in calcareous woods in East Sussex. It flowers earlier than common hawthorn and reports of early-flowering trees often refer unwittingly to C. laevigata. The hybrid between the two, C. x media is also quite common where the species grow together.
