Indian Hawthorn is an ideal choice for an attractive, low-growing hedge with its dense, dark green foliage and mounding growth habit. This hardy, evergreen shrub is a low-maintenance plant that requires seldom pruning and is moderately drought tolerant once established. Indian Hawthorn displays small clusters of white flowers in the spring and berries in the summer and fall making it attractive to many kinds of birds and butterflies. For best appearance, fertilize Indian Hawthorn 3 times per year in spring, summer and fall with a quality granular fertilizer.
