yes, hawthorn is a native plant. It does flower but may have off years, blackbirds, fieldfares like the berries. It doesn't get enormous nd can be cut back any time. Did you cut it back last year, that may be where the flowers went.
Garden style and content is very personal. I love the natives and I don't kill things. I don't have a pest problem, I have a balance. My garden is not neat but it's not a shambles.
