Parsley Hawthorn

An upright, small, deciduous tree with a slender trunk and many lateral branches bearing large sharp thorns. Tiny bright green, cleft leaves line the branches.  The leaves are very distinctive and resemble the leaves of parsley. Clusters of small white flowers with five petals and bright yellow stamens are followed by bright red berries that persist into winter. The thorny cover and berries attract many birds. The leaves turn bright orange to red hues in the fall.
