Botanical Name
Crataegus uniflora Muenchh.
Common Name
One-flowered Hawthorn
Flora of Virginia Name/Status
Crataegus uniflora Muenchh. var. uniflora
Our most widespread hawthorn and typically a small shrub only about 1-2 meters tall, though capable of attaining greater heights. The one-flowered haw will occasionally have up to 3 flowers together, but even without flowers, its shrubby habit, leaf shape, and slender thorns will usually identify it reliably.
Submesic to dry or, rarely, mesic upland forests; woodlands, barrens, old fields, clearings, and edges. Frequent in the mountains (except sw. Virginia) and Piedmont; infrequent in the Coastal Plain; apparently absent or rare in the outer Coastal Plain.
