Thriving in the heat, hot Sun and moderate humidity of the warmer Southern climates, the Indian Hawthorn shrub is ideal for hedges, foundation plantings and patio containers. Showy fragrant star shaped white flower clusters appear in Spring followed by inedible small dark blue fruits. These small berries remain on the plant throughout Winter, providing food for wildlife such as deer. Densely foliaged, evergreen shrub with bronzy foliage that slowly matures to a deep green color. Naturally grows in a neatly rounded shape, mature height is between 3 ft. to 6 ft. tall and wide. Easy to care for when planted in a Sunny site with well drained rather moist (not boggy) soil and good airflow.
