Indian Hawthorn Flowering Spring Shrub

The Indian Hawthorn or Raphiolepis indica is a showcase in zones seven through ten in the United States and native to China. Definitely one of the favorites to incorporate in a variety of gardens and landscape. I have used this specimen many times with clients. This specie can also be found in many countries in Europe and Asia.

The shrub is an evergreen and will thrive in full sun. It can take some shade but leaf spots can develop if planted in total shade. The Hawthorn is considered a low maintenance shrub and is drought tolerant once established.

The Enchantress is a dwarf variety with pink flowers. It will grow three to four feet high. The Fascination is also a dwarf and has both pinkish white flowers. The Snow White is a spreading dwarf that bears white flowers and has somewhat of a lighter green leaf.

The Majestic Beauty is a larger hybrid and can reach ten feet high. This specie has fragrant pink flowers and is a wonderful plant mingled in with other evergreens. The smaller varieties make a great container plant on a patio or deck or full container gardens. One of the highlights of the Indian Hawthorn is its brilliant mass of tiny white or deep pink flowers appearing in spring.

The white Hawthorn shrubs creates a soft and warm look to a garden. It can be planted around swimming pools and decorative ponds. You can use it as border or the larger varieties as backdrops.

The leaves are glossy and reveal a rich green tone. The leaf color remains this way from spring throughout the fall. When cooler temperatures arrive in the border zones, especially zone seven, the leaves will take on a red tint as signs of winter approaches. In late summer, shiny blue berries arrive and the berries give this plant family another dimension for your landscape.

The Hawthorn is a spectacular specie for coastal regions as it tolerates salt and high humidity. The Indian Hawthorn will do well in many warmer climates. It is also known to grow in some locations in zone eleven.

The shrubs can grow anywhere from four to ten feet in height and four to ten feet in width. This delightful year around plant provides any landscape or garden with year round color, mass of tiny flowers in the spring, and brilliant blue berries in the late summer and early fall.
