Hawthorns are quite difficult to distinguish but offer seasonal interests and high wildlife value. Spring flowers are showy and armed branching offers good songbird nesting protection. Cedar-Hawthorn Rust (with other rusts) are problematic and fungicidal sprays are necessary when hosts plants like Juniperus virginiana and Amelanchier spp. are in close proximity.
