Crataegus Monogyna Compacta, also called Hawthorn Compacta or Crataegus Monogyna Inermis Compacta, is a unique hybrid cultivar of the native Hawthorn, notable for its dwarf form.

Crataegus Monogyna Compacta is a dwarf hybrid introduced in 1907. It is not only much smaller than other Hawthorns. Its glossy, dark green leaves are complemented in April and May by the fragrant, creamy white flowers which cover the shrub and attract butterflies and bees, followed by dark red berries which are both ornamental in autumn and winter, and attract birds to the garden. The leaves turn yellow in autumn. Once the leaves fall, the bare form of Hawthorn Compacta adds winter interest.

Fully hardy in the UK and across continental Europe, even in the most extreme climates, Crataegus Monogyna Compacta will slowly grow at a rate of 5 cm per year to a mature height of 2.5 metres and spread of 1-2 metres in 20-50 years. Little or no pruning is required to maintain the rounded, dense crown of this dwarf Hawthorn.

Plant Crataegus Monogyna Compacta in full sun or partial shade in an exposed or sheltered position in any well-drained, fertile soil with an acid to neutral pH. Like all Hawthorns, it is tolerant of sea winds, so it is suitable for planting in coastal regions. Hawthorn Compacta is also pollution tolerant, making it ideal for use in small city gardens.

Crataegus Monogyna Compacta is small enough to fit into small city gardens and roof terraces, where its slow growth rate and eventual dwarf size will work beautifully. It is also a good choice for a small to medium sized lawn, where it will be an attractive focal point with its flowers, foliage, berries, and bare form providing a year-round interest. As part of a mixed border, it will cast shade as well as contributing its own blooms to the seasonal show. Tucked into a wildlife garden, Hawthorn Compacta provides valuable shelter for birds as well as food for bees and butterflies.

Crataegus Monogyna Compacta’s dwarf size makes this is an interesting variation on the native Hawthorn, and suitable for planting in even small city gardens.
