Hawthorn is a thorny shrub, very rowdy, 6 to 12 feet (2 to 4 meters) high, generally common in wasteland, hedgerows, vineyards and orchards, in forest edges and clearings of the Northern Hemisphere, it grows on calcareous, alkaline soil as long as it is always in full light. It can live up to 200 years, some specimens are even thousands of years old. Its luxuriant bloom covers the shrub with many white, or sometimes pink, flowers that become haws, small red fruits that will remain on the tree until winter to serve as food for birds.
In mythology, it is a symbol of health, prosperity, strength, protection, healing and fertility. In Ancient Greece, wedding guests brought a Hawthorn twig as a promise of happiness and prosperity for the newlyweds.
Hawthorn was mentioned by Dioscorides in the 1st century A.D. for its therapeutic properties, but then it fell into oblivion. In 1846, the Americans Yennings and Clement evidenced the remarkable properties of flowers in cardiac and nervous affections and their action on the vagus nerve.
