Dwarf  Yeddo Indian Hawthorne
Rhaphiolepis umbellata minor

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-11  Find Your Zone >

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Indian Hawthorne is not winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

This is one of our favorite of the Indian Hawthornes. Dwarf Yeddo Indian Hawthorne, Rhaphiolepis umbellata minor, produces abundant clusters of pure-white flowers in spring that contrast wonderfully with the very dark green foliage. The flowers are followed by black berries enjoyed by birds. Unlike many other Indian Hawthorne, which are mounding in form, the branches of Yeddo grow vertically to produce dense, upright, more rounded shrubs. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 4-5 feet tall and 3-4 feet or so wide, Dwarf Yedda Indian Hawthorne is an ideal for use as an accent, in groupings or as a low-maintenance hedge in home foundation plantings and landscape and flowering shrub borders. Can be grown in containers but likes growing in the ground better. A fine addition to bird gardens

Spacing: 3' for solid hedge;  6' or more for space between plants






Cultural Preferences

Dwarf Yedda Indian Hawthorne is easy to grow in moist but well-drained 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. An annual pruning after flowering helps to maintain a more dense shrub.
