Glastonbury Thorn

The 'Glastonbury Thorn' (aka Monogyna Praecox) is a type of Hawthorn found in England (UK) and believed to originate from Palestine/Middle East, also referred to as the 'Holy Thorn'. The tree is said to have been brought by Joseph Arimathea on a visit to England. Wherever Joseph travelled spreading the word of God, he carried a staff which he had acquired in Palestine.
