Special Attributes

Alba White Indian Hawthorne, Raphiolepis indica 'Alba', is a dense, mounding evergreen flowering shrub with large, disease resistant, oval shape, dark green leathery leaves that are attractive year round. It produces clusters of fragrant, pure white flowers intermittently from spring through summer. As with other Indian Hawthorne varieties, the flowers are followed by attractive, small purple-black berries enjoyed by birds. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a mound 3 to 4 feet tall and 4 feet or so wide, Alba 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. A fine addition to bird gardens and Xeriscape gardens (low water needs).

Spacing: 3-3.5' for solid hedge;  8' + for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Alba 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. So make sure to plant in a well-drained site. 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.
