Botanical Pronunciationraf-i-OL-e-pis
LoreEntomosporium leaf spot fungus has plagued Indian Hawthorn in the southern United States. Dr. Will Corley's efforts to breed fungus resistant varieties at the University of Georgia has yielded 'Georgia Petite'. It is derived from R. delacourii, itself a hybrid of R. indica and R. umbellata bred decades ago by M. Delacour at Cannes, France.
Average Size at MaturityModerate growing; reaches 2 to 3 ft. tall, 3 to 4 ft. wide.
Bloom TimeSpring
Design IdeasAn outstanding performer that offers multi-season interest for smallish homes. Choice grouped into foundation planting. Short stature is perfect beneath large picture windows. Use in mixed borders as singles or grouped for larger color splash. Line up into informal hedge or edging along pavement. Plant along the base of picket fences or to cloak seat wall footings. Well behaved choice for raised planters.
