Crataegus monogyna

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

In forum: Crataegus monogyna

This plant must rank among the top three for wildlife. It will provide good autumn colour and is prime habitat - probably the best one of all - for a huge variety of nesting birds. The red berries or haws that hang in clusters in the autumn are particularly attractive to redwings and fieldfares but are eaten by many other birds, as well as by small mammals. Hawthorn is also the food plant for a huge number of insects including some very attractive moths.
