Crataegus x lavallei
Lavalle Hawthorn

Lavalle Hawthorn, like many hawthorns, is an ornamental tree that is often used as a foundation tree, bearing in mind that its late May inflorescences are malodorous, its upright growth habit is often asymmetrical and as such may appear leaning, and the abscission of its large fruits in Winter may present an impediment to pedestrian traffic when placed near sidewalks.
