Hawthorn Trees are deciduous, small to a medium-spreading tree that is suitable for most gardens. An easy tree, it prefers sun but is very adaptable, growing in all but very wet soils. It is useful in polluted urban areas, exposed sites and coastal gardens. A Hawthorn tree in bloom is a glorious sight and is loved by bees. The bright red fruit is beneficial for all wildlife and is very attractive to behold in autumn together with its lovely red and gold foliage.
Symbolism, Folklore & Old Wives Tales
A magic tree, sacred to the fairies, is part of the Fairy Triad, Oak, Ash & Thorn. A very old tree it has much history and symbolism. It protects against lightning and is powerful in protecting a house from ghosts. In Roman times they placed hawthorn in cradles to keep a child safe. Carried in a sachet on a fishing trip hawthorn ensures a good catch.
And another lovely thought, if worn or carried, it promotes happiness in the troubled, depressed or sad.
