Native to the southeast U.S., the Washington hawthorn was first discovered by an unknown explorer and taken to England in the late 1600s. It was commercially grown in Georgetown and became popular around Washington D.C., its namesake. The Washington hawthorn was originally a shrub, but grew popular in its tree form. In natural settings, the Washington hawthorn grows in a wild and unkept pattern.

This applies to not only products, but also packaging.
