Snowbank Indian Hawthorn Key Features

With its compact growth habit this is a cultivar that is well suited for use as foundation shrubs or as low hedges unlike its larger relatives which are perfect for hedges or screenings. Once mature and well established they are quite water wise, salt tolerant and pest resistant them making them wonderful options for coastal plantings and container plants.

Caring for Clean Sweep Snowbank Indian Hawthorn

Once your shrub has arrived you will want to be sure to water before planting. This is a full sun to part shade plant so choose an area that receives suitable sunlight and begin digging! Dig a hole 3x the width of the Southern Living Plant Collection pot you received and backfill the plant 1 - 2" above soil level. If necessary, water and add more soil to the plant until it has been settled. In the early spring you may opt to fertilize you plant which should be done with a slow release, granular fertilizer.

Indian Hawthorn Soil

Your Snow White Indian Hawthorn will thrive in well-drained moist soil, but if your soil lacks these properties there is little need to worry. If you are planting Indian Hawthorn in dense clay, sandy soil or soil with other poor characteristics just follow this guide!

  • If you have dense clay: Mix in organic matter such as composted cow manure, mushroom compost and/or a plating mix at 1:1 ratio after removing the native soil from the hole.
  • If you have sandy, fast draining soil: If possible, mixing with topsoil, peat moss and/or compost will help the soil develop into the well-draining and moist soil that your plant will thrive upon.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

How to Space Your Snowbank Indian Hawthorne

Plant Your Snowbank Indian Hawthorne 3-5 feet apart is the average spacing. This will allow proper air flow between several plants. If you are looking to cover more ground, feel free to plant your shrubs 7 - 8 ft apart instead to create a formal hedge.
