La Vida Grande® Indian Hawthorn

Zone: 8, 9, 10 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Shade Height: 4-6' Width/Spread: 4-6'

Lots and lots of showy, rich pink flowers on large panicles and dusky peach-colored new growth make this one of the most colorful Indian hawthorns we’ve ever seen. A top performer in our Florida trials, where the foliage remained clean and healthy. Live large!

Light: Needs full sun exposure to really thrive. It can grow in a minimum of four hours of direct light, but it doesn’t get quite as an abundant bloom display.

Soil: Needs acidic, well-draining soil to really thrive.

Water: Is very drought tolerant once it’s established, which takes a year or so in good conditions.

Fertilizing: A granular fertilizer can be applied in the springtime.

Pruning: Doesn’t necessarily need any, but can be trimmed after it flowers in the spring.
