GENERAL INFORMATION:

Hawthorn, or Crataegus laevigata (Midland hawthorn), is also known as Crataegus monogyna, Crataegus cuneata, Crataegus oxyacantha, Crataegus pinnatifida, English Hawthorn, Epine Blanche, Epine de Mai, Haagdorn, Hagedorn, Harthorne, Haw, Hawthrone, Hedgethorn, Maybush, Maythorn, Mehlbeebaum, Meidorn, Nan Shanzha, Oneseed Hawthorn, Shanzha, Weissdorn, and Whitehorn.

The hawthorn is an herb in the rose family. It has white to brownish flowers, deeply lobed, rose-like leaves, and brown woody stems.

FOLKLORE / FOOD / FUN FACTS:

--The legends surrounding hawthorn trees go back centuries. Thomas the Rhymer, a 13th century mystic and poet, was said to have met the Fairy Queen underneath a hawthorn tree.

--Many country villagers believe that Hawthorn flowers still bear the smell of the Great Plague of London.

--The tree was formerly regarded as sacred, probably from a tradition that it furnished the Crown of Thorns.

--The device of a Hawthorn bush was chosen by Henry VII because a small crown from the helmet of Richard III was discovered hanging on it after the battle of Bosworth, hence the saying, 'Cleve to thy Crown though it hangs on a bush.'

--Particularly sacred is any grove with oak, ash, and hawthorn, as it is said this is where the fairy folk reside.

--The hawthorn tree is a symbol of love and the union of couples in marriage, and is one of the sacred trees in paganism.

--If on May Day one was to bathe in the dew of hawthorn leaves and blossoms, ones luck, health, and beauty was said to increase exponentially for the following year.

--The leaves and flowers contain more vitexin rhamnoside than the berries, and the berries contain more hyperoside than the leaves and flowers.

--Can be made into a tea or tincture, or even encapsulated.

--Hawthorn is the classic flower to decorate a maypole.

--Can be used in tea, incense, altar potpourri, and ritual oils.

--An herb of abundance, it finds its place in weddings, May Day celebrations, and ritual groves.
