Beautiful small-medium tree with winter interest! 冬景也美麗的山楂樹
‘Winter King’ hawthorn/green hawthorn (Crataegus viridis ‘Winter King’) showing persistent orange-red fruit that lasts until spring.
It grows 20-35 feet tall with a similar spread. Lots of small white flowers in spring and grow fruit in summer. Birds and small wild animals will consume its fruit.
它是薔薇科山楂屬的小型-中型樹. 成熟植株可達20-35呎(7公尺-12公呎)高及寬幅. 春天開滿白色小花,夏天結果,秋末果實成熟轉為橘紅色,橘紅小果實要到隔年初春時才會落果然後發新芽. 所以此樹有極大的冬景觀賞價值. 冬天戶外食物缺乏時,鳥類和野生的小動物會以此果充饑.
It is! That is why more and more people plant this. 🙂
So beautiful! The contrast to winter is amazingly beautiful.
It sure is! 🙂
Naturally decorated for the season!
Oh, the red against the white is gorgeous!
I think so, too!
