Hawthorn trees are found widespread in the temperate regions of Europe, Asia and North America. It is known for its pleasant flowers, which characteristically appear in spring and earned it the nickname May-tree. Hawthorn has a strong presence in much of European folklore, said to herald the coming of spring with its blossoms or mark an entrance to the enchanted land of the fairies. One particularly famous hawthorn tree, the Glastonbury Thorn, is thought to stand close to the burial grounds of the famed King Arthur. If harvested while they are young and fresh, hawthorn leaves can be used as a salad ingredient, or dried out and used to brew hawthorn leaf tea.
