Where to put it:
Great for privacy and accent, the Washington Hawthorn is often planted along property lines. This is a low-branched tree, so keep in mind that it will block the view of anything you put it in front of. Hawthorn adds an extremely native look to the landscape and looks great in odd-numbered clusters. This tree should be kept at least 10ft away from buildings. Because this tree has large, aggressive thorns in the upper canopy it is best not to plant next to walkways or high traffic areas.
