Reasons: This Hawthorn species is known from northwest Georgia and northeast Alabama. Reports have been made in Mississippi (Kartesz 1999), however, they haven't been confirmed. It is known from the upland forests over sandstone or calcareous substrates. It is also known from moist clay soils of creek flats. This species is related to C. iracunda and is possibly of hybrid origin. It is, however, a distinct species and typical examples are throughout its range. Overall, it is known from 6 separate sites in Georgia and three in Alabama (Lance 2006).
