Online Catalogue | Blackthorn Hedging (Prunus spinosa)
A native species, the Blackthorn hedge plant has profuse white flowers on bare black stems in April, followed by small, dark green leaves on the spiny stems and blue sloes in autumn. It's used as the main component of a mixed native hedge for wetter soils or if Hawthorn is the main component, then generally Blackthorn is added in to the mixture. It's use is very popular because of its early flowering period and profuse flowering. Despite it's name, it's not terribly thorny.Blackthorn cell grown and pot grown plants are available all year round and bare root plants are available from November to early April (sometimes late March).
