''Crataegus azarolus'' is a species of Crataegus, hawthorn known by the common names azarole, azerole, and Mediterranean medlar. It is native to the Mediterranean Basin and is a common plant there, growing on sites comparable to those the European common hawthorn grows on. In the Arab world, Arab countries it is the most common hawthorn species. When growing in the wild, the azerole bears plentiful crops of haw fruits, which are similar to the haws of the European common hawthorn, but more plump. ''C. azarolus'' is often divided into subspecies or variety (botany), varieties, for example Christensen in his monograph uses four varieties: *''C. azarolus'' var. ''azarolus'' has orange fruit. *''C. azarolus'' var. ''aronia'' Carl Linnaeus, L., has yellowish fruit often with some red tinges *''C. azarolus'' var. ''chlorocarpa'' (Giuseppe Giacinto Moris, Moris) Knud Ib Christensen, K.I.Chr. has yellowish fruit *Crataegus pontica, ''C. azarolus'' var. ''pontica'' (Karl Heinrich Emil Koc ...

Garden Plants Of Europe
A garden is a planned space, usually outdoors, set aside for the cultivation, display, and enjoyment of plants and other forms of nature. The single feature identifying even the wildest wild garden is ''control''. The garden can incorporate both natural and artificial materials. Gardens often have design features including statuary, Folly, follies, pergolas, Trellis (architecture), trellises, Stumpery, stumperies, dry creek beds, and water features such as fountains, Garden pond, ponds (with or without Koi pond, fish), waterfalls or creeks. Some gardens are for ornamental purposes only, while others also produce food crops, sometimes in separate areas, or sometimes intermixed with the ornamental plants. Food-producing gardens are distinguished from farms by their smaller scale, more labor-intensive methods, and their purpose (enjoyment of a hobby or self-sustenance rather than producing for sale, as in a market garden). Flower gardens combine plants of different heights, colors, ...
