I'm looking for detailed information regarding dwarf hawthorne (raphiolepis umbellata 'minor'), specifically growing details, flowering season and any other information you have.

Rhaphiolepis is a member of the Rosaceae family, an evergreen shrub that has glossy, leathery leaves and a compact growth habit. They flower from mid-winter through spring with 3/4 inch white flowers, and producing dark blue berry-like fruit that's attractive to birds. Most Rhaphiolepsis stay low, but 'umbellata minor' is a dwarf, attaining the grand height of less than three feet. The plants will grow in full sun to part shade, occasionally have problems with aphids, and are subject to fireblight.
