Irish Hawthorn in outback Australia
Will the Irish Hawthorn trees grow in outback Australia? I would love to grow a Hawthorn tree but do not know what variety if any will grow in my area.

Based on the information found at the below website, the crataegus monogyna, or irish hawthorne, "is extremely tough and versatile, long-lived, tolerates hot to cold temperatures, damp to dry conditions, salt, wind, heavy damage, most soils, and semi-shade."
So - it sounds like you might have a decent shot of getting it to survive in the hot, dry Australian outback. Good luck!
