The Eleanor Taber™ Indian Hawthorn is a versatile evergreen shrub with a broad, mounded form growing to about 4 feet tall and 5 feet wide. In spring it is smothered in hundreds of fragrant pale-pink flowers, which turn into long-lasting purple to black berries that brighten the fall and winter seasons. With its moderate rate of growth, it is ideal for making informal hedges that don’t need trimming, or it can be trimmed after flowering into more formal shapes, from straight hedges to balls. It is very resistant to wind and salt-spray, so it is a great choice for a seashore home or cottage, just one row back from the full force of the sea. It is also drought resistant, and with its compact form it is ideal for planter boxes too.

  • Lovely mounded evergreen bush to 3 or 4 feet tall
  • Profuse blooming of fragrant pale-pink flowers
  • Attractive purple to black berries in fall and winter
  • Wind and salt-spray resistant
  • Tough, reliable and drought resistant

Grow the Eleanor Taber™ Indian Hawthorn in full sun, or in partial shade with a minimum of 6 hours of direct light. Plant it in any soil, from damp clay to dry sand, but avoid very alkaline soils. In planters makes sure they have drainage, and use regular potting soil, not garden soil. This variety is more resistant to diseases than many other forms of Indian Hawthorn, and it is rarely bothered by pests. If you want to trim, do it immediately after flowering, so that it will still flower well the next spring.
