English Hawthorn

Also known as - May bush, Mayflower, May tree, Quickset, Quick Thorn, Thorn-apple tree, Whitethorn, Haw, Ladies' Meat, May or May blossom.

The hawthorn grows as a shrub or a tree in England but is commonly grown as a hedge, as its thorny stems make it an ideal boundary hedge - to keep unwelcome visitors out of the garden and to keep in livestock.
