    Uses Notes: 

    Indian hawthorne can be used in both landscapes and gardens for brilliant spring color. Their evergreen foliage makes them a great companion to colorful annuals and perennials. 

    Maintenance Notes: 

    Grows best in full sun, has a higher bloom count and better disease resistance when it gets 6+ hours a day. 

    If you'd like to prune, do so after it has bloomed in the spring. Pruning during this short window of time will ensure that you don't remove next year's blooms as they form on new growth.
