Answer: Raphiolepis indica (Clara Indian Hawthorn) is a mounding, rounded evergreen shrub with deep green, leathery leaves and an abundance of small, fragrant, white flowers in mid to late spring. New growth is reddish. Grows to 4 feet tall and wide. This plant withstands shearing, but looks best if left in natural form. Soil should be moist, but well-drained and moderately fertile. Does well in full or dappled sun. You'll want to give each plant about 5' of space all around so it can grow to its full potential without being crowded - unless you want to plant them on 4' centers so they can grow together into a solid hedge.
Hope this answers all your questions!
