Mystery tree.
« on: November 20, 2018, 05:46:51 PM »
Any ideas on this one? It's a small tree, maybe 20 ft tall, with long weeping branches, and has these bright pink flowers. It's deciduous, and certainly not from NZ, and has me a bit stumped.

Kinda reminds me of an oak leaf hydrangea but those have 4 pedals and the flowers mostly form in a cone shape.

Finally got an ID on this one. Friends neighbour was there and knew what it was. 
It's an ornamental variety of Hawthorn. Pics on the wikipedia page show the exact same flowers.

Crataegus is a big group. IIrc there are over 60 species native to the state I like in alone and they are 

mostly hard to key to species. Mostly a small shrub.

If you have enough biologist you will have more, Texas lists some 1600.

They intergrade/hybridize so readily that they are difficult to positively ID.  They resist pigeon-holing.

That does look a lot like one that we started planting up here, C. virginiana(?), the cultivar is Crimson Cloud. Notable, as I understand it, for having red/pink blossoms instead of just white.

Turns out the problems with Cratageous are not new. Here is an article from 1942 talking about the same issue:
