Fruitscaping™ with Mayhaw Trees

Enrich your garden with an often overlooked Southern delight by Fruitscaping™ with our Mayhaw Trees. These highly adaptable trees offer fragrant blooms, vibrant autumn colors, and a distinctive fruit that is cherished across the South.

Mayhaw Trees are known for their white, fragrant spring blossoms, which give way to clusters of crimson to yellow-orange fruit, depending on the variety. Their attractive, hawthorn-like fruits are a delight to harvest and are often transformed into jellies, syrups, or wine, giving a unique Southern twist to your culinary explorations.

These trees are versatile, thriving in various soil conditions, although they do prefer moist, well-drained soils. The Mayhaw Trees also appreciate full to partial sun, helping to foster healthy growth and abundant fruit production. With their hardy nature and minimal pest and disease issues, they’re a low-maintenance option, even for the novice gardener.

As the trees mature, their lovely form provides an ornamental quality, making them an appealing addition to any landscape. Their lush green foliage turns to stunning shades of yellow and orange in the fall, adding a burst of color to your garden.

Mayhaw Trees stand out when grown as a focal point in your landscape. However, they can also be integrated into a mixed edible garden alongside other fruit trees, like pears and plums, creating a beautiful and bountiful garden space.

Embrace the excitement of Fruitscaping™ with Mayhaw Trees. From the journey of planting and caring to the thrill of harvesting your homegrown mayhaws, these trees offer a unique and rewarding gardening experience.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
