Pruning: The Snow White Indian Hawthorn typically requires minimal pruning, only for maintenance purposes or to remove dead or damaged branches. Prune after flowering to shape the shrub if desired.

Fertilization: Fertilize the shrub in early spring with a balanced slow-release fertilizer formulated for flowering shrubs. Follow the recommended application rates provided on the fertilizer packaging. Avoid excessive fertilization, as it may stimulate excessive vegetative growth at the expense of flowering.

Winter Protection: The Snow White Indian Hawthorn is hardy in USDA zones 7-9. In colder regions, provide a layer of organic mulch around the base of the shrub to protect the roots from freezing temperatures. Avoid excessive watering during winter months and monitor for any signs of cold damage, especially in zone 7.


When planting the Snow White Indian Hawthorn, select a location that receives full to partial sunlight. Prepare the soil by incorporating organic matter and ensuring good drainage. Dig a hole slightly shallower than the root ball but twice as wide. Place the shrub in the hole, backfill with soil, and firm it gently around the roots. Water thoroughly after planting and continue regular watering until the plant establishes itself. If planting in a pot, choose a container with drainage holes and use well-draining potting mix. Place the shrub in the pot, fill with soil, and water thoroughly.

The Snow White Indian Hawthorn thrives in full to partial sunlight, requiring a minimum of 4-6 hours of direct sunlight per day to promote healthy growth and abundant flowering. Water the shrub deeply and thoroughly once a week, ensuring the soil is evenly moist. Adjust the watering frequency based on weather conditions and the moisture needs of the plant, allowing the top inch of soil to dry out slightly before watering again. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot and other issues.
