Dwarf Indian Hawthorne's (raphiolepis indica) are low maintenance flowering evergreen shrubs that grow 3-4' and 5-6' wide. The pink or white flowers are produced in abundance during spring making them an excellent substitute for azaleas in full sun. These are exceptionally drought tolerant plants. The foliage is evergreen. Pink flowering are Raphiolepis indica 'Calisto' and white flowering are Raphiolepis umbellata minor 'Yedda'. The is a pure white flowering dwarf named Raphiolepis indica 'Snow'. Yedda Indian Hawthorne is always a dwarf whether or not it is marked as a dwarf. This particular cultivar grows about 4'X4' at maturity. Hope this clarifies things for you.
