Crimson Cloud Hawthorn
If you have limited space in your landscape but want a small flowering tree, consider the 'Crimson Cloud' hawthorn. Growing to a height of 15 to 25 feet with equal spread, this tree works well in smaller spaces. Blossoms of crimson red flowers with white star-shaped centers appear in late spring. Fall foliage color ranges from bronze to red-orange.
