About This Plant
Partial shade or shade. Evergreen leaves and a rounded form. Pink blooms appear on the past season’s growth in mid-spring; to enjoy the bloom, avoid shearing the hedge until after flowering.
Indian hawthorn prefers well-drained acidic soil, which isn’t common in south-central Texas. To avoid chlorosis, amend heavy clays with compost or other organic matter at the time of planting.
Indian hawthorn is vulnerable to a variety of environmental stresses. Expect some supplemental irrigation for plants in full sun. With an appropriately protected setting Indian hawthorn is fairly drought-tolerant once established.
