History/Lore

First noted scientifically in 1883, the tree received its name from its point of origin when introduced to Pennsylvania from Washington, becoming known as the Washington thorn because of its prominent thorns.

It is said that American legend Paul Bunyan used the Washington hawthorn’s branches as a back scratcher.
