Indian Hawthorns are small, slow growing, broadleaf evergreen shrubs for sun to part sun. They are easy care and do not require much pruning due to their natural compact rounded shape. Leaves are leathery and dark green in color changing to a to a purplish color in winter. Indian Hawthorns are showy in the spring or early summer as large, loose clusters of fragrant pink or white flower bloom. Small blue berries arrive after flower petals drop; the berries attract wildlife. Planted close together, Indian Hawthorn form a low hedge.
