In this state of Indiana, this plant is listed as a threatened species. Please don't cut one down! And please plant one if you have the opportunity.
Note: Crataegus pedicellata is a name for a species of Hawthorn that has been shown to be the same as C. coccinea L., common name "Scarlet Hawthorn". Under the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature, the older name (Crataegus coccinea) should be used. Considerable confusion persists, however, because the name C. coccinea has been misapplied for a long time.
