Hawthorn is a tough, fast growing native shrub used widely in the UK for hedging. Hawthorn is a tough deciduous shrub bursting into spring with profuse white, sweetly fragrant flowers in spring followed by showy red hawthorn berries or haws in the autumn attractive to wildlife. It is one of the main ingredients for mixed native hedging schemes.
It is a good choice for coastal, windy, and exposed areas. Hawthorn is one of the most popular plants for boundary hedges because it is easy to grow and maintain. Hawthorn bushes have sharp thorns, somewhat hidden by its bright green leaves, making it a perfect as a security barrier.
