Genus Description Rhaphiolepis is a genus of about 3-5, posssibly up to 15 species of evergreen shrubs and trees from scrub in S.E. and E. Asia. They are grown for their alternate, often toothed leaves, which are glossy, dark green, and leathery, and for their fragrant, apple-blossom-like, star-shaped flowers, borne in erect, terminal racemes or panicles in spring or summer. Grow in a sheltered border or at the base of a warm, sunny wall. May be the most versatile of all evergreen shrubs. Excellent cover for foundation planting that takes afternoon sun in summer. Well proven for parking lots and along driveways where reflected heat is problematic. Suited to making a casual naturalistic privacy screen or sheared into sheared into a more formal hedge. Size is ideal for a small tree in courtyards, urban gardens and in limited front yards. The indica specie (Indian Hawthorn) is a busy, spreading, evergreen shrub producing narrowly elliptic to lance-shaped, deeply toothed, leathery, glossy, dark green leaves, to 3-4 inch long. In spring or early summer, bears white flowers, to half inch across, with pink-flushed centers, in loose racemes or panicles, to 3 inch long.
Care Tips
Cultivation Under glass, grow in soil-based potting mix in full light. In the growing season, water moderately and apply a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly; water sparingly in winter. Outdoors, grow in moist but well-drained, moderately fertile soil in full sun, with shelter from cold, drying winds. Trim or lightly cut back shoots that spoil symmetry annually or after flowering. Remove dead and damaged growth in midspring. Dead head regularly if practical (unless fruit are desired).
Pests and Diseases Prone to scale insects, fireblight, Entomosporium leaf spot, and web blight.
