Indian hawthorn Overview

A small genus comprising approximately 15 species of evergreen shrubs and trees in the rose family native to Southeastern Asia where they inhabit warm temperate and subtropical regions. Members have tough dark green leaves and attractive white and pink-tinged hawthorn-like flowers. In cultivation, some species are popular amongst bonsai growers and others are commonly used in commercial landscaping in the South of the USA. In the UK they prefer a sheltered position in full sun.
