I'd like to hear your experiences with them too, especially as regards to
fireblight, scab, rust, etc.
Thanks

I don't remember the species names, but I noticed that One Green World had
several different groups of hawthorns for sale this time around, including
Mayhaw from the S. United States, Azarole from Italy, and a hawthorn from
China. All claimed to be hardy to z5.
