About This Plant

Partial shade or shade; evergreen, greyish-green leaves envelop a naturally rounded form. The leaves are fairly large and provide a nice contrast to yaupon holly and boxwood in the world of sheared hedges. Pink or white blooms appear in mid-spring on the past season’s growth; the berries are retained until winter.

Indian hawthorn prefers well-drained acidic soil, which isn’t common in south-central Texas. To prevent chlorotic yellow leaves in heavy clay, amend soil at planting time with compost or organic matter. Indian hawthorn can be drought-tolerant once established, but this is likelier in shade.

Maintenance

Blooms appear on the previous season’s growth, so don’t prune until after flowering. Indian hawthorn is vulnerable to a variety of environmental stresses; expect some supplemental irrigation for plants in full sun.
