More about Snow White Indian Hawthorne...
Don't let anyone tell you that there is a better Dwarf Indian Hawthorne on the market. Since the early 1980's we've tried them all and Snow White stands out as the most hardy and reliable of all Raphiolepis. It's a great alternative to azaleas where there's too much sun. The olive green foliage becomes covered in pure white flowers during spring and new growth is an attractive reddish-bronze color. We've seen absolutely no problems with leaf spot in the South and humid regions...and we can't say that about any other variety. It keeps it's low, dense form with no pruning or shearing and has tolerated temperatures below 5 degrees F in our gardens with no damage at all.
Snow White Indian Hawthorne grows 3 to 4 feet tall with a 5 to 6 foot spread making it an excellent selection for foundation plantings, in shrub borders, on slopes for erosion control, or as a natural or formal hedge.
Snow White Indian Hawthorne is easy to grow and low maintenance. It is super drought tolerant when established. Plant in locations that provide very well-drained soil and full sun to part sun. Constantly soggy soil can lead to root rot and leaf spot. Avoid overwatering this plant. During the first growing season, water only enough to keep soil damp, but not wet. After the first year, this plant should rarely need supplemental irrigation. Pruning is not required however can be done after bloom to maintain a formal shape. Cease pruning two months prior to the first typical frost date in your area.
