Crimson Cloud is a selection of English hawthorn. The strikingly
beautiful red flowers in the spring make this an excellent hawthorn
selection for accent type plantings. Tree is very adaptable to
Colorado’s diverse soil types. It does very well in clay soils and has
not exhibited the typical chlorotic (i.e., yellow) leaf symptoms
sometimes caused by clay soils. Tree has an upright elliptical growth
habit. When established it can grow better than a foot a year, which is
unusual for a hawthorn. Mature height will be somewhere around 20 feet
with a spread of 15 feet. (zones
4-8)Leaves: Attractive deep green finely-toothed leaves throughout the
Twigs: Young twigs are golden brown in color. They also grow in a wavy
manner, which adds to the winter character of the tree.
Bark: The bark is a golden brown color on young branches that are
smaller than two inches in diameter. As the main trunk and branches
mature the golden bark begins to turn gray and flake off.
Flowers: Small ½ inch beautiful red flowers with a white center. Flowers
cover the tree just as leaves are emerging. These flowers are gorgeous
when examined up close.
Fruit: Small ¼ to ⅓ inch fleshy apple-like fruit. Green fruit in the
early summer turn bright red in the fall and are persistent on the tree
through the winter.
