RE: crimson king hawthorne

I have a 'Crimson Cloud' Hawthorne. It is flowering right now and doing very well. We planted it on the south side of the house. We had another on the west/northwest side of the house but it was winter killed this year. The last four years, it did quite well. Like you we had a bad winter but we get a fair amount of snow every year and the snow didn't seem to hurt it. I think what killed it was the harsh winds and the freeze/thaw cycle in early spring.
