Parsley hawthorn from Ken in SC

This is a small shrubby plant that was spotted at the McAlhany Nature Preserve on the woodland trail along the Edisto River. Hawthorn? Species??

Hi Ken,

this is one of my favorite hawthorns, called Parsley hawthorn, Crataegus marshallii.  The rather finely divided leaves are distinctive.
