Answer: I'm not really sure why your Indian hawthorns have failed to thrive. They will adapt to any soil type, have a high tolerance to salt, and are drought resistant once established. They do require well draining soils, though, or they can develop root rot. Indian hawthorn will not be as dense or flower well if grown in partial shade. In addition, plants in less than 6 hours sun often lose foliage due to a leaf spot disease. Be sure air circulation is good around theplant to prevent leaf spot diseases. Overall, this is a perfect low-maintenance shrub in a full sun position. Wish I could be more helpful!
