Fact sheet: Indian Hawthorne
This slow-growing, small, rounded evergreen shrub is ideal for any sunny garden. The neat, compact growth habit seldom needs pruning and the low profile makes Indian Hawthorn well-suited as dense, large-scale groundcovers, low dividers, or informal hedges. High salt-tolerance makes Indian Hawthorn especially useful for seaside plantings.
