Hawthorne blooms late. Our last frost date was three weeks ago. The better tasting fruits have finished blooming weeks ago. These will reliably produce every year and produce little berries that birds love in the fall. Hawthorne also a long history of being used for heart health. The leaves, blooms, and fruits may all be used medicinally. Its likely good for your heart whether you just grow it for the birds or gather some and use it.
