Washington Hawthorn
Nova Raspberry

Washington Hawthorn is an attractive ornamental shrub that is dense enough to plant as a privacy screen. It produces clusters of white blooms in late spring to early summer.

Washington Hawthorn's red berries last throughout winter, bringing squirrels and birds to your property. In the fall, its foliage turns beautiful orange, scarlet, or purple.

One of the most overlooked trees on the prairies. This tree is often used as rootstock, a wildlife attractor, or a boulevard hedge. Give this one a second look.

This species is also known as one of the more salt-tolerant species for those with saline soils.

Please note: this plant is poisonous to dogs.

Taste. That's usually the number one reason people buy the Nova Raspberry.

The Nova Raspberry gets its name from where it was bred, in Nova Scotia. It was created to survive and thrive in the wildly varying climates of Canada, and it does!

This bush toughs it out through the harshest winters and reliably produces large crops in the summer. Nova canes have very few spines. As it has a firmer berry, it is commonly planted for commercial plantings where a harvester is used.

Nova Raspberry produces average sized bright red berries, with a long shelf life and delicious taste.
