Midland hawthorn differs from common hawthorn in that the leaves have lobes which are less than half the length of the midrib, while the common hawthorn has more deeply incised leaves. Another way to tell them apart is by looking at the fruits - the common hawthorn only has one in each berry, hence its Latin name monogyna, while the Midland hawthorn has two. The two can occasionally hybridise. Like common hawthorn, Midland hawthorn is ideal for wildlife-friendly gardens.
