Hawthorn (Crataegus oxycantha) is a small thorny tree or shrub that produces brilliant red clusters of berries. Native to the Mediterranean region including North Africa and all of Europe and central Asia¸ Hawthorn can now be found in many areas of North America. According to Christian legend¸ the Crown of Thorns was believed to be made of Hawthorn. Therefore¸ the herb was thought to possess miraculous health properties. In ancient Greece¸ Hawthorn was a symbol of hope and happiness¸ while in Rome it was considered a potent charm.
