General tree description
Crataegus x dippeliana is thought to be a hybrid of C. tanacetifolia (Tansy-leaved hawthorn) and C. punctata (Spotted thorn). It has dark grey, ridged bark and very twisted branches. The leaves are up to 8cm long, broadly ovate, with seven to eleven lobes that reach less than half way to the midrib, and coarsely toothed. They are deep green and hairy at first above but almost hairless by autumn. There are white flowers in mid June, up to 2.5cm in diameter, followed by 15mm dull orange-red haws.
