Michael Dirr calls this selection 'the king of the hawthorns'. A beautiful, spreading tree, Winter King sees widespread usage for landscaping as it is also tough and reliable with very few thorns. The delicate white blossoms of May develop into clusters of 20mm (¾") bright, orange-red fruit which hold on into winter. This 'King' looks regal in all four seasons, is very adaptable and disease resistant and grows relatively quickly to become 6m (20') tall and 7.5m (25') wide.
