Tree is about 15 ft. tall, spreading at top. Trunk(s) smallish, about 5 in. diam. Thin bark peels like a crape myrtle (pinkish under bark). This cutting is 6.5 in. long and largest green leaf is 1 in across. Lives among a real tangle of all sorts of flora next to golf course.

    Correct Flower Fanatic; parsley leaved hawthorn, notice the leaves are cut like parsley. Flowers stink when open, but beautiful no less. Understory native, Cratagus marshallii.

    Possibly and even probably. Bark is consistent with parsley leaved hawthorn. However, leaves are not so deeply lobed, and are narrower at base than tip (like oblanceolate), but with three lobes at top (consistently). The tree has no thorns. What about the tiny leaflets at the base of each mature leaf? I didn’t see it when it flowered and, if it did, the fruit have dropped.
