Has smooth, gray bark and sharp thorns which grow along the branches. The leaves are dark green with shiny, bluish-green undersides, and have irregular tooth margins. Snow white flowers bloom from May to June and grow in terminal corymbs.

a neighborhood around the outskirts of Baltimore City, it used to be a good quite its an addict infested paradise filled with drugs and whores. But, on the bright side, you will not find a greater amount of diversity anywhere else besides baltimore. smoking, drinking, and being a stoner are a must down here, it is a way of life and death. Its filled with scene kids, preps, emos, goths, juggalos, rednecks and so on...and let's not mention the constant drama and fights. The police swarm this place making it hotter than hell, when there is really no true need (honestly) see dealers, thugs, and loser native americans everywhere...there are people who keep it real, but there are also alot of stuck up motherfuckers (GOD THEY NEVER GO AWAY)...the rats wonder the streets day and night, it is junk-filled, dirty, and trashy...but it is where I lay my head and call home
Guy: wanna fuck?
Girl: well we can't go to my crib
Guy: can't go to mine eithers
Girl: hmm?
Guy: hey i got an idea!
Girl: huh
Guy: why don't we go up to Hawthorne and fuck in the woods
Girl: sounds like a good idea!
