Rhaphiolepis indica 'Pink Lady' (Indian Hawthorn) is a hybird of the popular India Hawthorn shrub which reaches 5-6 feet tall and as wide. It grows in full sun or light shade and is drought tolerant. Pink Lady is a fast-growing shrub with fragrant dark pink flowers that bloom over a long period. It is grown for its show of color, for the attractive dark, leathery leaves and for its durablity which all combine to make this popular evergreen a colorful plant for the garden, either as a specimen plant, an informal hedge or screen. The leaves begin bronze and burgundy and mature to dark green. It thrives in dry hot climates as well as cool coastal ones where it is dought tolerant and a low maintenance shrub.
