Indian Hawthorn (Raphiolepis indica)
Indian Hawthorn are dark green shrubs that produce large clusters of small pink flowers in mid spring. Naturally a mounding shrub whose width and height are proportionate. They can be trimmed formally or grown naturally. Flowers lead to purple berries in fall and winter. Prune right after blooming to prevent berries.
Very cold hardy, these tough shrubs grow very well in full shade and can acclimate to full sun if planted in fall through late winter.
Sometimes the Indian Hawthorn can be found in white.
