Blackthorn

A plant reaching heights of up to 6m (if not regularly cut as part of a hedge), Blackthorn can be characterised and differentiated from the commonly mistaken Hawthorn using the following:

* fruit – known as Sloe berries (dark blue in colour)
* leaf shape – oval in shape
* thorns – size and location of sharp spines differ. Blackthorn has far more, longer spines than a Hawthorn.

This plant is known to grow well, surviving episodes of drought, grazing by animals and hard pruning.
