This hawthorn is more erect and open branching with less twiggy growth than other hawthorns. Its long toothed leaves are dark green and leathery, about 2-4 inches long. They turn reddish-brown after the first sharp frost and hang on well into winter. In the spring the tree has white flowers that are followed by loose clusters of very large orange to red fruit that persist into winter.
