Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
RHAPHIOLEPIS indica 'Monme'(SPRINGTIME®)
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Easy care and a beautiful all season plant for the southern garden, 'Monme' is also known by the trade name Springtime®. Indian hawthorn is a compact broadleaf-evergreen shrub native to southern China. This selection has a rounded habit and produces loose clusters of fragrant, deep pink flowers in spring and intermittently through summer. These are sometimes followed by blue-black berries that are partially hidden by the leathery, glossy, dark green leaves.
Indian hawthorn grows best in full sun and fertile, well-drained, slightly acidic soil. Leaf spot can be a problem on some cultivars so avoid overhead watering and collect and dispose of diseased leaves to keep plants healthy. Use Springtime® as a low hedge or in the foundation planting. It can also be grown under glass in cooler areas.
