Raphiolepis indica

Raphiolepis indica

Common name Indian hawthorn
Family rosaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z6-9)
Cultural notes drought-tolerant

Evergreen shrub popular for its spring flowers, autumn berries, evergreen foliage and manageable size. The plant is native to China, but is commonly planted as a foundation shrub in the U.S. We got ours as part of our builder's landscaping package, and have no idea which variety it is. So I'll put in an update when it blooms next spring.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: houston front yard
