Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
RHAPHIOLEPIS indica 'Ponto's Pink Clara'(CAMEO®) PP7403
Cameo® Indian hawthorn was selected by Ponto Nursery Inc.of Vista, CA from seedlings of the cultivar 'Clara.' It is a compact, broadleaf, evergreen shrub like the parent species, a native of southern China. However, 'Ponto's Pink Clara' has shown great resistance to diseases that can plague Indian hawthorns. From late winter through spring, it produces clusters of fragrant, pink flowers that almost obscure the plant. They are followed by blue-black berries. The leathery, glossy, lance-shaped leaves emerge a coppery-bronze and mature to deep green and remain attractive through winter..
Easy to grow, this Indian hawthorn likes full sun and fertile, well drained, slightly acidic soil. Use Cameo® in the foundation planting or as a backdrop for a flower border. It can also be grown under glass in cooler areas.
