Special Attributes

Eleanor Tabor Indian Hawthorne is an exceptionally low-maintenance, drought and heat tolerant evergreen flowering shrub that produces abundant clusters of pretty, light-pink flowers in spring. It is a good alternative to Azaleas where there's too much sun and dry soil. No pruning is necessary as this shrub will maintain a dense, mounded form all on its own.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a mound 3 to 4 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide at maturity, the Eleanor Taber Indian Hawthorne is an ideal selection for use as an accent, in groupings or as a low-maintenance hedge in home foundation plantings and landscape and flowering shrub borders. It also serves well as a colorful mass planting for erosion control on slopes and embankments. Can be grown in containers but likes growing in the ground better. Great for bird gardens!

Spacing: 4' for solid hedge;  8' or more for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

Eleanor Tabor Indian Hawthorne is easy to grow in well-drained moist soils of average fertility in full sun to part shade. Morning sun is a must to dry dew from the leaves. As with so many other ornamental shrubs, constantly soggy or wet soils can cause root rot and other harmful plant diseases. When established Indian Hawthorne are exceptionally drought tolerant. That said, during prolonged periods of summer drought established plants will appreciate an occasional deep soaking. Does not require pruning to maintain its naturally dense form.
